    Hi guys-

    What are you using to remove gunk from pickup shells? I've got a pair of Barts that have some dried grayed buffing compound on them and I'd like to get them back to charcoal.

    Use some Meguiar's plastic & vinyl cleaner.
    It will take the dry wax off and make the plastic look new.
    Any auto parts store will have it.
