    How to remove white chalky wax residue?

    Ok, My spoiler has that white chalky wax residue shit in the seams of my SS spoiler from the previous owner. The chalky stuff is hard as hell and I'm ready to get it out of there. What is the best way to remove it?

    Try some rubbing alcohol mixed with water (50-50) and use a Q-tip to remove

    Even a quick detailer works. Especially if it's wax. If what you need to remove is compound, that might be a little tougher to remove than just regular wax...
    Ask me how I know...
    I worked on a number of cars out of a body shop, and they had me remove the compound after a paint job. Not fun!

    yea, QD works pretty good. I typicaly use an APC on a mf cloth and works perfectly.
