  • I have polish on the plastic bit of my car *gasp*

    How do i remove it?

  • #2
    Take it its on the exterior of the car, like the wingmirrirs where i always get it.

    Try some all purpose cleaner but failing that a small, and i mean small amount of white spirit will get it off....

      Which plastic bit are you on about? Most of it is colour coded to the car.

        Could be:

        honey comb under V grill
        honey comb on bottom splitter
        honey comb around fog lamps
        honey comb strips on rear bumper
        Wingmirrors
        Rear windscreen wiper
        aerial mount
        seals around the doors
        plastic around bottom for front windscreen

              Could you clarify this as i havent got a corsa. I thought the roof strips on the corsa were colour coded like the astra. Try doing what i put above, try some all purpose cleaner first using abit of elbow grease should get it off, if not try some white spirit, i have done in the oast and its no affected the plastic at all.

                  Really, you live and learn, might try some Jam then with the peanut butter, should be out of this world then!

                    peanut butter, cooking oil or AG glass cleaner will do the trick sometimes wd40 removes it
                    Astra VXR, Power Red with Hints of Gloss Black and the full PPP setup...... NOW GONE
                    Mazda 3 MPS Aluminum silver. Standard for now......
