    Z-14 Plastic Magic Cleaner & Polish, help

    Alright, when the guys tinted my windows on my TSX they left some water streaks on the plastic. So I ordered some of the Zaino plastic cleaner because I use zaino on my Camaro and have pretty much everything they sell. I started using this on the back left door and it was pretty much a disaster. The black plastic now looks like it has a kind of white coating on it and it looks well, horrible. I would appreciate any help from anyone. I just want to get this stuff off and hopefully save myself from getting a new door panel and one on plastic piece I used it on. Thanks.

    Z14 is for clear plastic treatment, right?
    See if it would come off with some Z9
    Clean the surface with soap and water to remove whatever is on there first.
    What kind of plastic are we talking about? Is it textured black plastic, smooth plastic?

    The reason why I suggested Z9 is because you've said you have all Zaino products, and I thought you may have that in hand
    Do you have Z6? Try that and see
    you can always go to your local parts store and see what they have for trim, vynil cleaning type products. Lexol, 303 cleaner, or any APC should work

    Ok, you think I should try using these products to get this stuff off the plastic ? I do have Z6, you think that would take off product?

    Do you have pics of the plastic?
    It's hard to speculate what may or may not work without seeing it first, a quick wipe down with Z6 it's worth a shot. You want to try something easier first to see where you are

    Z-14 is for clear plastic parts such as headlight covers, instrument panels, plastic windows and such. You probably got some residue in the textured areas of your plastic and since it's black, it shows up like a sore thumb.

    Yea, im passed realizing its messed up. Just need some ideas on how to fix it. Don't know how I feel about putting wd40 or bug and tar on my interior... thinking some dawn dish soap or something might work.

    I had just gotten my windows retinted and had the same situation. All i did was use a wash towel with some soap and warm water and scrubbed the door panels really well then dried them. It took a couple passes but they look fine now.

    For your problem now I would say get a soft bristle brush, some warm water with Dawn dishwashing liquid and go to town on those panels. Using a towel to soak up any drips or excess.

    Good luck with getting your problem taken care of.
