    Restore plastic trim destroyed by IronX / TarX

    Any suggestions to restore black plastic/rubber trim that appears bleached from IronX and/or TarX?

    What kinda paint protection is on the car? Reason Iím asking is that looks like something Meguiars gold class wax would do to trim.

    Try some Solutions finish.

    Sorry, for context, the original handle is cheap black plastic/rubber. The white speckling is the discoloration from chemical.

    Terrible picture, sorry. The damage occurred when applying CQuartz UK, but the car has previously seen cheap wax including Megs Ultimate Wash & Wax.

    You are going to have to give it a deep clean especially now that you put UK and then use a trim restorer.

    The handles weren't coated. I ended up using tap water and a Magic Eraser with light rubbing which seems to have removed whatever that was (perhaps wax residue?). The handle may be slightly more dull than before everything happened. I guess we'll see what happens over time if the Eraser actually removed the "damage" or just masked it.
