Little cleaning advice?

Alright guys so my 1969 Grande has a white vinyl roof and has these offset, dirty white bumpers on the side (I swear I did not put them on must've been the old lady before me.) I've tried using just normal scrubbing with soap and water but the grime isn't going anywhere. Anyone know a trick to clean this? It's literally pieces of old rubber in metal brackets. Thank you!

Make sure it's dry water knocks the power right out of 409

I don't know if I would let it get on the paint though. Seems like anything like that might affect the paint

Yeah that's what I was thinking so I just sprayed a paper towel. It helped a little but honestly I don't think anything but bleach could make it pure white again

409 no worries

409 will not hurt paint, works awesome taking bugs off front end also. If you're that worried mask it off, you need to spray it on and let it sit a little and a toothbrush would be a good tool for the scrubbing.

Alright thanks! Only reason I'm too hesitant with spraying is because I just got my car painted a couple months ago and the last thing I need is for that to get messed up already haha

Fresh paint you might want to mask off, you didn't mention that before maybe dip the toothbrush instead of spraying

Why didn't you get rid of them before a new paint job?

I would have but they're screwed into the body from the previous owner. Would've cost $1,000+ more to take them out AND fill the holes. The guy at the body shop told me to just find new rubber molding for it and it's easy to just replace it because the rubber inserts are shrinking after 30 years and are all beat up. Trust me, I wish it were easier

Money always gets in the way of a good plan.
