I just finished paint cleaning/polishing/waxing my new to me black magic pearl 99 B5. But remembered a problem I ran into with my 98....How do I get wax off the black plastic panels? I know i'm not the only one with this problem. Any recommendations would be great. :thumbup:

Mother's Back to Black is a great product, very easy and fast to apply.

Klasse All-in-one and Sealant Glaze is also very good for cleaning and protecting those black plastic parts.

Least messy and least expensive is use a Pink Pearl Eraser just like you used in school ..

I own a black B5.5 and I also detail a lot of high end black cars and a couple things I do ..

1) Mask off the rough black plastic with blue painters tape. It takes 5 minutes and saves you an hour..

2) Use a polymer not a carnuba .. on black it lasts longer and most polymers don't stain the black plastic. A good new one is Meguiars NXT.

Thanks for your feedback, everyone. :)


I was thinking about masking it off.....but about 2 hours into the project. Does the glue from the tape leave a residue? Cause however nice switching to a polymer sounds, I just cracked open a tin of Collinite Marque D'Elegance...and I love the results. :thumbup:

And how exactly would one go about using the PB? Even if I don't go that route, curiousity begs the question. :D

No the blue painters tape doesn't
