    Afternoon chaps, I was going to put this in detailing but decided this section may be slightly faster with replies.
    Anyway, I have today commited a cardinal sin, well in my book that is.
    I had my old bus washed in a so called hand car wash centre, I was pushed for time doing it myself due to other commitments and stupidly decided to pull in one local to me and get the old bus washed ,man what a mistake that turned out to be.
    Upon getting home the wife said , whats all the white marks on the car, I jumped out and the old bus is covered in water marks, despite them drying it .
    The brightwork looks terrible .
    I've sorted the paintwork but the marks on door trims ,roof rails etc wont budge.
    So before I go out and shoot myself for making such a stupid mistake, what is the approved method to deal with said problem.
    I never , ever use these places and the one time I do, it all goes tits up...

    Helpppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp me.

    Did you try using an APC on them. I'd try something as simple as Megs APC followed by a pre-cleanser fluid and then a QD etc. Should sort it out.

    As simple as Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner or something similar like Bilt Hamber Surfex HD but diluted. Any QD to be honest. Again, Sonax BSD, Done & Dusted or any wax you have. Clean with the APC and coat with QD/Wax.
