Recently I tried everything (including PB) to no avail.

Then I bought this stuff:

(wax blaster)
$5 and it works like a dream.

it hides it, but it won't remove it, works in a pinch though, and makes it look very clean

ITS NOT CUSTOM IF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ISN'T ON

Back to Black is good on the trim around the door windows. They get kinda ashy after awhile...

I use a steam cleaner. Ya know, like the Steam Shark commerical you see on TV. Works the best, as it melts and washes the wax away

|DCR Pistons| |DCR Rods| |OE crank| |DCR bearings| |DasMotorsports head| |Crower springs| |Crane 16 cams| | UR Cam gears | |AGP turbo manifold/Psi-Fi turbo| |Psi-Fi intercooler| |JMB CAI| |JMB ported intake manifold| |LFS 60mm TB| |NX wet kit, etc., etc.|

Should be 13's, for sure

Yours for the right price! (Cheaper then you think!)

First off, to save yourself from future problems--tape off the trim

And, Meguiars and Poorboys (specialtymotoring.com) both sell a trim restorer type product. Both have worked well for me in the past for wax residue and to bring the trim back to like new.

I have used this and works everytime. Just use this and an old toothbrush.

Along with this as a follow up.


You'll never know you had wax on them.

OK WaxBlaster is bull shit. Don't waste your money, it just smeared mine. Put half a bottle on 1 door and instead of a half black, half wax swirl door trim, i now have a completely white door trim!

Thats odd. Did you shake it up? You don't need to use alot..just enough to wet the area, agitate it for about 10-20 seconds with the sponge tip..and wipe away with a cloth. Worked for me .

Try the peanut butter...

Tried wax blaster, (exactly how the bottle told me to), WD-40, and Bug remover. Nothing did a damn thing. Mind you....the wax has been on my trim for about 3 weeks. Anyway, I went to wal mart and bought some stuff that worked really good. I had to apply about two coats and it worked great. I don't feel like running to the garage to see what it's called but I'll edit later about it.
