Strange marks

Post by remirol » Fri May 17, 2019 1:48 pm

Afternoon all, it’s been a while since I’ve been on but I’m stuck as what to do. I work abroad and have just collected my car from the 2nd part of the recall, I’ve just washed her and have noticed some strange marks on the piano black pillar between the doors, I’ve tried everything but a scour pad to remove, help please !!!?

The marks feel as though the are under the black plastic, it’s not raised nor can I make any impression with my finger nail. I’m going to try Autoglym Tar remover, if not it’s CIF and a scour pad :D

Don’t use a scour pad , you’ll scratch the trim
