Default pearl white yellowing....

I finally got to wash the Z after 3months. Stabbed through my left hand with a just sharpened Henckles paring knife when pitting the 9th avocado. Bought 2 bags from costco and only 2 were not spoiled.

While washing the car with one hand.... i have noticed that the rear wheelwells to the rear bumper were yellowing. I scrubbed it again and again but its staying. I usually wash my car every weekend if its sunny. But due to my injury i was not able to for about three months. I keep my car garaged by the way.

I can't totally see it in the pics. But my guess might be dirt or something. Try a clay bar that might take care of it

I agree. Claybar first. If that doesn't work, use machine polish with an orbital polisher. After that....a good coat of wax.

Claybar didn't work. Machine polish fixed it. Washed+ waxed. Problem fixed.
