Try soapy water and a fine grade steel wool. or bring it to a meet and let me know I have a product that WILL fix it but it isnt on the market yet. My cell number is in my profile. gimme a call if it doesnt work.
BTW dont apply pressure to the wool either it will scratch if you arent careul.

Ardex is no joke when it comes to wheels! I would never use it! If you want to see what happens to a set of BBS wheels that have been cleaned with Ardex I will be at FW tonight. It is not pretty.

I have the perfect thing for that. its called Bon-Ami.
you can pick it up at any grocery store in the "cleaners" section. mist the window wet, sprinkle this stuff on it, take a wash towel and GENTLY go over the window while keeping it wet.
then hose off the car and wash (that stuff gets everywhere)

***Warning***
Just to let you all know so you don't make the same mistake I did. Watch the outside tempatures when using ArmorAll Cleaning & Protectent wipes(Yellow&Purple Bottles). I happen to use it on my cluster on my last car and the heat scraped the shinny gloss right off. It left a horrible residue & fade on it. After hours of looking at online forums, the best thing I found was to "Bake It" or get a lens curer. I didn't do the first one but yeah, needlesstosay, the lens curer only worked until the chemical dried. hahaha. It was probably 80 degrees in the shade where I had my car. Not sure about the other brands, but just be careful. Hope I save someone from ruining their Cluster shield. The shields are a B**ch to replace by themselves.

Do your BBS wheels have a clearcoat finish to them? I ruined a set of wheels with the stuff. It ate the clear right off.

Foggy as in theres a film or foggy as in it gets foggy. If its a film, try cleaning with rubbing alcohol and fine steel wool. and then using a window cleaner.

Any tips for working with a random orbital buffer? I use Mother's PowerPolish and PowerWax. Also, what bonnets are best, and what bonnet is used to apply and which is to remove? Any tips for removing gum? I have some on the passanger fender on the bottom.

Orbitals dont do anything your hand cant. And bonnets eventually will ruin your paint. Foam pads work best for polishing apps.

Guess I gotta get some foam pads. Are they available for the 10 inch buffers?

^Seriously, he will. He does a good job too. You shouldve seen mine before he cleaned it. It was full of pine needles and crap.
