Only tried the gas on one part of the letter to see if it did anything. Bought some a-z wheel and tire cleaner, so next wash Ill try that. If that doesn't work I also got some comet and a tooth brush, hope that will work out better.

What is spray 9 and where can I get it if I'll need it?

Ok, little annoyed now! Tried degreaser, comet, a-z wheel and tire cleaner amoungst everything else I've used and its still on there. Even called eagle one and they said it would just wear off after a couple washes, well its been about 10 and there are no signs of it fading. Please help me!!!! Here is a picture of it to hopefully get some more info.

Spray 9 would be your best bet. Its a very common product and you should be able to pick it up at any department store for about $10 or so. Just spray it and let it sit for 30 seconds and scrub away, rinse and enjoy.

It makes me wonder if the white is just...gone, and you can't get it back. But after looking at it, it almost look stained.

I talked with a few professional detailers and they all had similar answers. It's not so much the chemical, but the media that needs to be changed. A brass brush with westleys or a strong cleaner should work. Brillo and SOS pads can be used too as they are abrasive and should help out.

I will have to try the brass brush. After trying everything you guys suggested I still couldn't get it clean. I took it to a friend who has a detail shop and they looked at it and tried everything they had. Got the letters 95% white again which is fine with me but low and behold after a few days they became brown again. Not nearly as bad as the picture but still enough to bother me. If the brass brush doesn't work then I'm throwin in the towel. Good thing they're only my winter set of wheels.
