    Happy early fall to everyone,

    It appears that the 2015/2015 FISTs (and possibly earlier years too) use a thin plastic clear tape around the wheel wells and other places were the paint might get nicked from road debris. When I wax the car (and I have used many different types of wax and have done this by hand and with a RO polisher, a thin line of wax gets built up at the edge of the tape. When it dries it turns white and it makes the car look like a toon car with the white wax outline against the PB paint. Anyone got a way of removing just the wax without stripping the rest of the wax off. I have tried my fingernails with a polishing cloth but that doesn't work very well.

    Any ideas??

    I sometimes use a toothbrush with fine, soft bristles. Don't use stiff bristles. They can scratch the paint.
    Wipe with a terrycloth afterward.

    Came to ask about this as well. It drives me crazy.
