Removing Contaminants on Wrap

My wifes TT has a gloss nardo grey wrap which looks great at a distance, however close up you can see contaminants like where bugs hit, and those yellow spots which i've never worked out what they are.

Any suggestions on what to clean these with, i've only ever used shampoo as i've assumed things like bugsquash etc. shouldnt be used on wrap.


Cheers !!


Dean

I get these on my PPF which are clear, worse ones are the patches on the front of the rear wheel arches that get grief, but arches are protected.
I use the iBrid and compound them with a small 40mm pad and it works. Gets the stone chip scuffs out too. Heat is the enemy so cannot be a rush job.

Front end I use same tool with 70mm pad, no scuffs as yet, but bug marks come out.

Not sure on a wrap, not sure they are as thick as the PPF.
I have seen wraps being machined and waxed and the topic was being discussed that many were not aware of this.

Mate that’s one seriously glossy looking wrap, do you know what brand it is?

Wraps and vinyls can be with care. There are a couple of alright YouTubers who’ve covered it.
