I have dried wax in various areas of the rubber molding, on the plastic under the windshield wipers, even in the "5.7 Litre" GTO side emblem. My brother suggested Q-tips with nail polish remover, but that idea is scary. Any tips?

Use a SOFT toothbrush and gently wisk away. It should not take much to remove the wax. If it does then change to a different type. I prefer Zaino,
but there are others that come off easily as well.

All those work for me...I run 2 inch masking tape over my shirt or jeans a few times to kill most of the adhesive, and use it to cover the leading edge of the rubber at the panels I am working on. It keeps me from getting wax on them...

Whatever you do, do not use nail polish remover... WAY BAD IDEA!

Simple tooth brush is all you need. Be sure to leave some on. If someone ever accuses you of not waxing you can say... "look here. I waxed it"
