Water/Washed Off Mud Spotting Fender Flares...tips? :(

Hey! At yesterday's Hollister run, I drove my black truck through some puddles. All my previous Tacomas have had lighter paint w/ the metallic specks. I never realized how difficult black was to maintain! I washed it today- tried a clay bar (nothing) and Meguiar's ultimate compound-removed a lot…but I still have streaks/spotting on the plastic fenders, etc.

I'm still in the anal "my truck is new" phase, so I'd like to remove them if possible . Keep trying by hand or can anyone recommend a local place on the Peninsula (northern cal) with a Porter-Cable or similar to get this junk out? Thanks! Sean

i just rub meguires ultimate black on the plastic fenders and it does the job. Then again they are approaching grey from being 10 years old. If you find yourself in saratoga pm me and we will slap some on and see what happens

Additionally, I also found that you can remove a lot of crap off with your hand! Lol.
Lol- the hand huh? Where can I buy that product?
