How to clean this?

Does anyone know how to clean the dirt around the outsides of the panels on my 2006 4runner?

Bonus question: how can I make the running boards black again?

I read your reply and replied to it....here's my reply here as well, plus a bit more info.

I'm not sure if you know what her issue is, what I see is dirt getting behind the edges of the clear film on the door/s at the bottom of the clad panels, this clear film was install to help protect the plastic cladding from rock chips, the dirt line you're seeing is not on the paint it's on the back edges of the clear film.

You can possibly clean the dirt from behind the film but it will just be back fairly soon because the edge of the film is lifting up/slowing coming loose allowing dirt to get behind it, some on the forum have removed the film so this doesn't happen any longer but how they got it off would have to be searched for as I don't remember exactly how they got it off, I know it's not as easy as it sounds because it has a self adhesive back on it.

It seems I do remember one guy using a safe solvent that won't damage the paint but will dissolve glue and plastic razor blades, yes you read that correctly, plastic razor blades, check online they are made for using on painted surfaces so it won't scratch the paint.

Yes, I knew what it was, but I thought that you had already removed the ppf and were just dealing with the residue.

No real way to fix it except to remove the PPF, clean as I outlined and replace with new.

Unfortunately, once PPF (Paint Protection Film) starts to peel, there isn't much one can do. Even if you remove the damaged areas, it won't be long before it peels again.

Remove it, clean the area and reapply new film. Auto parts stores (PepBoys, Autozone etc.) sell rolls of cheap, somewhat junky, film in 4 and 6 inch rolls that is fine for this sort of application and you can swap it out every couple of years.

My other post was written in a very basic way, so please don't take it as being talked down to if you know that already.

No 4Runner in these markets, the Fortuner is mostly in SE Asia. Australia is getting them next year, which will be at the demise of the LandCruiser Prado. Toyota has to react because all the Thailand built "utes" will have an SUV version in the coming 12 months. Isuzu has release the M-UX based on the D-Max, Ford is releasing an SUV based on the new Ranger, Holden (GM) will have a new model, and finally Toyota will release the Fortuner.appvalley tutuapp tweakbox

Aerospace 303 is great for keeping / returning plastic and rubber to their original color. Also protects from UV and helps prevent drying and cracking. I wipe all the black plastic and rubber trim down on my cars once a month or so.

It sure shouldn't, its basically just sunscreen for exterior surfaces. It is really popular for marine use since boats take so much abuse from salt water and direct sun. It makes a world of difference on window trim, grilles, etc.

Just used this on the black trim panels on the back side of front window and front part of back window, and also on the black plastic on top rear bumper. It made a world of difference. Highly, highly recommend. Thanks for the tip.
