Wax residue on my wheel moulding trim.

What do I use. Its been on there awhile, real difficult to get rid of it. Any ideas to remaove. I have used a wet rag, degreaser. Its on the textured trim for the FX4's and 4X4's.

Thanks

I can't recall if I have used diluted dish soap or some other mild detergent, but I have gone at is with some sort of mild solution and an old tooth brush - that way, the brush gets down into the small contours and the nylon bristles won't damage the paint. Sorry I can't remember what sort of cleaner I have used - it's been awhile.

Mother's Back to Black works pretty well. I don't think it actually removes it but it does a good job of hiding it.

Use a normal pencil erasor. It`s free and wipes everything clean off...

thanks guys. im going to try the eraser.

I don't really want to hide it. I want it gone. I used some of the Mothers back to black on my dad's 97 Dodge Ram on the front bumper plastics. Looked good and now its back to faded.

I have been able to get some of it off with my finger, but it really doesn't feel that great after awhile. The word "Burning" comes to mind!
