Anyone got any ideas for this?
Previously owned and has left the soap on too long and it's reacted with the laker possibly

I'm only assuming it's soap that reacted with the laker on the metal.
It looks like soap bubbles and I thought it would rinse off but noting will budge it. Gonna try metal polish on a test patch as soon as I get a dry day. Not sure about the black window trim If all else fails I will get it taped.

Looks like water spotting should polish off if you live in a hard water area and the water has time to dry the lime evaporates from the water and leaves residue behind.

If it's hard water use a gentle acid, such as diluted vinegar, to dissolve it. Test first obviously.

hi, just to add marks like this can also be caused by traffic film remover, especially that used by cheepo car wash crews....

I only hand wash it with triple wax car soap.... It was there when I bought it used. Cheers, I'm gonna try some test spots with apple cider vinegar solution. Tried polish of types but nothing moved it.

Ile do a couple of test patches and leave it a day or two.
