Question fender stains

i see a bunch of threads on how to get stains out of the soft top, what about the fenders? i noticed today after i washed my jeep.... yes im one of those guys, i keep my jeep clean! ...i have some mud stains on my fenders, any idea how to get those off? it was getting dark while i was washing it, so i haven't tried ANYTHING on the fenders yet, it might be as simple as wiping them down with a simple cleaner, something stronger then soap... just haven't tried yet.

Yeah I've seen guys painting or "rhino lining" there fenders, I may end up doing that. ...but somebody out there has to have made something to Take stains out of the plastic fenders! I've also got wax stains on them from polishing my diamond plate rocker guards. Sucks!

This might work


This might work but then again might be overkill?

Finally got my dealer to agree to send my new JKU-R to a detailer to get all the hard water marks out of the paint and glass. Sounds petty, but the detailer had a bugger of a time getting the glass clean even with an acid mix.

Anyway, I started asking about best detailing products etc. I mentioned all the black plastic on the Jeep and said I was using 303. He said "expensive, but there's nothing better".

Convenient place is ACE Hardware. For better pricing and larger size just search on Amazon. Got mine in about 3 days. I recommend the bigger bottle just because this stuff can be used inside and out.

I recommend 303 as well. If you happen to do the soft top while you're at it, COVER THE WINDSHIELD. I had a hell of a time tryint to get the film off of the glass from over spray. I could hardly see at night if a car was coming toward me.

Acrysol body solvent does the trick.

Solved it kids! The right stuffs been right under our noses! "Westlys bleach white"! Not only does it get the mud stains off your tires and turn them black again, it does wonders in your top and even the fenders! I couldn't believe how good it worked. The mud sat on my jeep for two days before I had a chance to clean it.
