Help! purchased used 2012 B with wax swirls in stripes

First hello to everyone and thanks for the help.

I just purchased a 2012 2SS Bumblebee. A dream come true.
Finally got back into an fbody. I bought it slightly used and despite
seein the wax swirls in the textured part of the stripes took this baby home.
Ive searched high and low for a way to get these swirls out with ni avail.
I tried a very small amount of olive oil and man did it make the swirls disappear
Untill today when the car sat in the sun and those swirls reappeared. I tried
IPA, dawn, and a waterless was but nothing has worked. Am I screwed or is
there a solution? Have pics on my phone. Ill try to upload.

Thanks again
Scott

Depends how long they've sat there. Try an All Purpose Cleaner, those are made to disslove wax specifically.

IT won't. It's not a cleaner. It will cover it up for a little while..

Don't forget to dulit the APC,, might be too strong to start. Start 1/3 apc to 2/3 water and increase from there. Then VRT.
