I guess that's a lesson learned. I usually clean that crap off but I procrastinated. Paying for it now. I'm just going to go get the trunk repainted. This sucks.
I've got another question. What causes the black trim to turn gray? That's starting to happen. Is there anything I can do to stop it from happening with out making it worse? Someone told me if I used something to protect and condition it (or whatever you call it) will just make it worst.
