I am trying to remove the Zep from my graphics.  It has turned milky over the dark graphics and I could not get it off with wax remover.  Any suggestions. Has anyone had problems with Zep causing decals to crack?

Maquires oxidation remover will remove the milky white residue.  Then use Maquire Pure carnuba wax and finish off with Maquires Polish. You can buy all three in a kit on Amazon or individually from most auto parts stores and marina stores.

A solvent, such as acetone, will remove it...but I have no idea if it would be recommended over the graphics and other finishes.  I know this because I used acetone ( & also another, laquer thinner I believe) while I was doing some repair and resealing work and it stripped the acrylic floor polish off mine lickety split....not what I was trying to do mind you....  I've noticed no ill effects on my finish, but your may be different... or maybe I just haven't noticed something that happened.
