Wax on edges of clear bra.

I bought 458 Ferrari that has a clear bra. The dealership waxed the car and there is wax residue on the edges of the clear bra. Two questions. How can I remove the wax residue and is there a wax available that won't leave this residue? I am a little lazy and don't want to have to mask every edge on the clear bra. Thanks in advance for any help.

PF1 Film Cleanse. It is designed specifically for paint protection film. Spray along edge and take a clean microfiber to the edges.

I use blue painter tape on the edge of my clear bra before I wax and polish my car. The tape removes easily after I am done. Also, try using a tooth pick to remove any of the wax buildup yu currently have. Just make sure you don't press into the seam of the clear bra. That should do the trick.

+1 for toothpick...wooden. Just lightly pull away from you or glide along the edge of film. Don't press too hard.

i found that a qtip with the cotton (non plastic) handle cut at a 45* angle using a razor gave me excellent results cleaning up wax residue.
