    I had a lot of white overspray on my beige car and got it off with a clay bar. However, I can't seem to get the overspray off my rubber trim, and the black plastic trim around my side-view mirrors. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Paint is tricky but I know there is stuff to clean those black rubber edges.

    Vanilla Moose usually works. You do have to put some muscle into it if the overspray is heavy.

    Lacquer thinner works great, but don't get it on the paint! If the rubber is discolored, use a vinyl dressing to bring back the color.

    There is med or heavy duty clay that might work? If everything else fails 3000 grit wet sand paper using your hands /w same kind of soap you clay /w, plastic razor blade na that won’t work it will screw it up or will it work I sure won't try it on a nice paint.
