Poor paint quality on plastic parts

Recommended Posts

I recently noticed that I got some road tar on my car's driver side door.  I was able to remove it with typical tar and bug remover from the metal panels.  However, the plastic panels are stained all the way down to the plastic.  Any one have ideas how to treat this?

Hey there,

I have not seen this issue before, but if it was mine, I would try taking a Qtip with 93% Isopropyl rubbing alcohol on it and gently rub one of  them in an inconspicuous spot  to see if that will lift it out. You can buy it at Walmart in the rubbing alcohol section. Or, again take a Qtip dipped in bleach an touch it to the spot and hold it there a few seconds to see if it bleaches it out. Just make sure you pick a spot that will not be noticeable just in case. This is what "I" would do so make your on decision to do so.

Next time, don't wait so long to wash your vehicle or don't buy a white one.
