Post subject:  Side molding cleaning.

I have seen posts awhile back about how to clean the body colored side moldings on our car. I can not seem to find it now. I believe since they were molded in the body color they can be cleaned with lacquer. Any advice on how to keep them looking fresh?

Thanks!

Honda Polish works awesome, used it for years on my gsxr 1000, takes bugs off very well also. Tried it on my side molding and it took all the sticky and black off them. To say the least I was very happy.

The door moldings are getting very sticky and a little dull. I tried what was mentioned in the linked post, but it doesn't work. Would there be any other tricks to get them to not be gummy and shine? Would the Honda cleaner work or are they beyond help at this point and I might as well have some new ones painted and installed??

Thank you!!

Sorry to hear it did not work on yours, it worked great on mine, so who knows. I'll try to take a pic of the can i used to see if what you used was different.

I've got the famous sticky teal moldings too, I've cleaned them a few times over the years. The last time I used spray bug and tar remover, (spray on the trim, let sit a few minutes, work it off with a rag soaked in it) which cleaned the crud off pretty well, but left them very tacky. To remedy that, I used WD-40 sprayed heavily in a rag and wiped them down. That took care of it, but a few weeks later, they are getting tacky again - although not dirty/cruddy. It is solvents in the material outgassing, and after 24 years, you would figure it would have stopped by now. It is worse in the summer months, the trim stays nice in the cooler months.
