Alright, well, 2 weekends ago when the weather was nice, i did a full clay bar, polish and wax on my car (I still need some training i guess since it took me 2 days to complete). Anyway, when i was polishing the car with the orbital polisher, I got some polish on the plastic kick/rocker panels. My question is how the hell do I get that shit off of there. haha im still kicking myself in the ass still finding polish in some of the cracks and crevises, but those will rub off no problem, but this plastic shit is killing me. What can i do?!

Use some mild degreaser and a sponge. Next time cover up all the plastic trims with painters tape. It will save you the headache

taping it off is definately on my list for next time haha... the day of, i thought perhaps bug and tar remover would do it, but that didnt work, degreaser i didnt think of, but will give it a try. Any other idea's people have would be helpful too, im sure im not the first one who's made this boo boo before...

Did it turn it whiteish? If Ivans theory doesnt work, use what inkedup said.
Its really hard to get that whiteish color off.
Wax by hand next time.

wax was no problem... its the polishing compound that isnt coming off and the wax I apply by hand anyway. I used the orbital for the polishing and then to remove and buff the wax. Aside from the white polish on the plastic, she shined like a mirror when i was finished.

Orbital does nothing when polishing. To do it rite you should be using a high speed buffer to polish. I do like the idea of using the orbital to take the wax off, saves your arms, lol.

orbital seemed to do just fine with the polishing, and the wax removal and buffing was a breeze.

I think your missing my point bro, I'm sure the orbital worked good for polishing.
But in order to take full advantage of polishing it should be done with a hi-speed buffer.
