How do I get these black streaks off of my trucks paint?

    Would like to know if anyone has found a good product that will take these dark streaks that are very noticable on my Suzuki Carry's white paint? Soapy water and a sponge does not touch it.

    Dollar store sells a product in a spray bottle for a buck, called Awesome! Won't hurt the paint!

    Magic eraser will probably work but you have to remember that its an abrasive sponge so you will loose the gloss on the plastic if you overdo it. Personally I would try Goo Gone.

    My guess is that it is actually staining, and you’re going to have to take off a bit of the paint, and then buff and wax. And, the paint on the Trinity trucks is generally pretty thin. So, you run the risk of going through it.

    I might recommend just putting a vinyl wrap skin on it.

    Thanks, I'll give it a try. I have some gutter cleaner but that stuff is too harsh.

    Yeah, as you know, you have to be care full with any cleaners! I know first hand that this stuff works! I've used it and I found the longer it sits the more it cleans! To be safe, and satisfy your cautiousness, try it in an inconspicuous area. Other cleaners will probably work as well, like simple green, and others! Like was mentioned earlier, IF these don't work you can always take other measures! This would be my first try! Remember the paint is probably only 2 mills thick, which isn't a lot, so go slow and be care full! Good Luck!

    If the above doesn't work, try some boat hull cleaner from the boat section in Wal-Mart. It is really good for stains. Just make sure you rinse it off before it dries.

    Have the same stains on my sambar van. Must be some pretty harsh air pollution in Japan.
