I've used these 3M products over the years with very good results.

Try bar keepers friend and magic eraser and elbow grease. This is part of the prep for putting on RedMaxPro. Can search for that on this site.

Pretty sure you're going to have to strip it to get those streaks off. On mine I did the Bar Keepers Friend using a 3M no scratch pad and then covered everything with the Red Max Pro. Mine had no shine at all when I bought it so I had nothing to loose. A year later it still looks great with lots of shine.

I think Barkeepers Friend has a small amount oxalic acid in it - which removes rust stains and cuts through water stains too. There used to be another product called "ZUD" which was really a great rust remover, but I haven't seen it in years. I used to live in a house with high iron well water and the toilet bowl was brick red under the water line. I tried everything. My boyfriend tried everything including steel wool... and couldn't cut through it. I brought home a can of ZUD on a friend's recommendation, sprinkled it into the bowl and literally watched it work like bleach. If you find it, let us all know where.

Bon Ami doesn't scratch, but I don't think it works quite as well on rusty streaks.

Try Scrubbing bubbles bathroom cleaner with a nylon brush.This stuff works magic on carpet,vinyl,plastic etc.I have been using it on Ferrari's and Lamborghini's for 20 years.

If the Scrubbing Bubbles does not work on a small test area a Detail shop can use 3M finesse with a buffer on low speed and remove the streaks.

I just got some 3M rubbing fine/med compound. I am going to do the light grey this evening except for the rear(where the streaks are). The lower dark grey came out with a high shine with elbow grease and Liquid Glass. I was going the use orbital polisher as I am afraid i'll loosen the decals with a buffer.

Rubbing compound is pretty harsh 3M finesse is much,much more fine.Use masking tape and tape off the decals.

Use in a hidden area first....disclaimer over. On my old SOB I used Wesley's Bleach White on ABS and plastic exterior components for 17 years without damage. It removes all kinds of streaking well. Don't leave it on for any longer than it takes to scrub...rinse immediately.
