Ok so when i used the 3m adhesive remover on my bow tie yesterday I must of gotten some on my tailgate handle (even though I was spraying it onto a cloth) it looks as if the spray splashed on the trim and left spots/marks.. I tried cleaning it off with soap/water... Then I tried a protector wipe (used for plastics/leather/vinyl). It made it lighter but u can still see it (most likely it’s lighter because the protector making it shinny). I also noticed some of the spots on the bumper plastics (really just on the license plate lights).

Any ideas? I know it’s really not much but i am really anal about things like this... lol especially if it’s on my truck. :grrrrrr:

Maybe using "back to black" cleaner, or using a tire shine spray can get them out. If you are going to paint it anyways I guess it can't hurt. I have a friend that used to use tire cleaner on his black plastics and it would clean them up really nice, but I have never tried on my own vehicle. Best of luck and let us know how you make out.
