Removing wax from exterior trim pieces

I recently waxed my 1982 300D, and my sloppiness got wax on the little black trim part that runs from front, around the rear, and back to the front on the other side of the car (I assume it's used to protect the car from getting door dings), and on part of the bumper where it meets the body. So, it's a little gray and almost white in some places. How do I get the old wax off?
Thanks,
-Joe

Wax the car and then clean the rubber, and treat it with 303 Aerospace Preservative. It will remove the wax and leave the rubber black looking

It can be found at any RV center

Ditto on the 303. Next best thing is to wipe the area with some of that "instant detailer" spray.

Thanks,
Richard
