Hello all. I was searching the threads for this first but cant seem to find an answer that I am happy with, haha. I used the meguiars gold class paste wax w/polymers in it and it works GREAT! Except......I got some on my black plastic trim. I have tried scrubbing the SH*T out of it with a green scrubby. I have scrubbed so hard that the green has actually came off the scrubby, lol. It looks like the wax is gone when it is wet, but when it dries it still comes back. WTF!? I mean, it did say in CAPS on the can not to get on plastic or vinyl. But they didn't state HOW imperative it was not to....bastards. I'm sure that is for marketing reasons, as if they stated what REALLY happens when you get it on there, less people would probably buy it, haha.
First off, do all wax products have this kind of tenacity with plastics, or is just because this has polymers? Will a carnuba ONLY wax still have this effect? If they all do, I guess it looks like I'm gonna have to mask it all off when I wax!? And second off, how (if at all possible) do I remove this crap of the trim? Is there any kind of black stain for plastics on the market to cover it up?
Also, in the course of scrubbing my tailgate latch trim I accidentally scrubbed the clear coat in a very small area with the green scrub. It isn't deep. More so just looks dull. When I run my finger across the paint it feels smooth until i hit the blemished area. Then it just feels a little rough, just not gliding across. My finger doesn't have a hard time moving across it though, and it doesn't catch. I have some nu finish liquid polish. Will this work on the little area? Also will it stand out from the rest of the good paint that hasn't been treated? I dont want to have to do the whole damn truck so it matches. I was thinkin maybe go get some MeGuiars scratch-x? But i don't know if that is too abrasive for this job. Well, what do you all think i should do here? I know these are A LOT of questions, but Im sure somebody here can answer these in a couple of sentences, haha. Any help will be greatly appreciated. If you cant tell, Im completely OCD about certain sh*t in my life......Maybe I shouldn't have gotten a black truck......Then again, because of the OCD I might just end up having the best lookin' black truck out there, haha. Thanks in advance
