Since my side sills are unpainted, what removes old wax from them? I try not to get any on when I wax my car but somehow I always end up with a spot or 2.

Ok, don't kill me here.. this is just what I've heard. But.. I've heard that you can get wax off molding with.. (drum roll).... peanut butter. Now I haven't tried this .. so I don't know, but hell, how harsh can peanut butter be? It's worth a shot.

Back To Black and a tooth-brush(if does not come off with just the rag)! Believe it is produced under mother's brand label.

Do not get it on the paint if at all possible.

I second that! Mother's Back to Black is the best stuff I've used. Toothbrush works good. Wish I had known about it sooner.

You might also look into the AutoSport catalog (I think they have a website, too). They have some stuff that actually dyes the plastic black again.

Yep, this is true, its peanut oil that does it... so if you just have some peanut oil, that will work better. Id just suggest vynil cleaner though.
