Cleaning new Alclad

I'm finishing the installation of my new interior skin and need some advice on cleaning the protective coating residue, grade markings and mill oil from the 2024 T3.

I've removed most of the black grade marking and residue from the coating adhesive with acetone but need to truly clean the panels to a streak free shine. So far, Windex is working best.

Any experience out there?

I like to use MEK and a cotton cloth, no rubbing is necessary and wipes off in a flash.

Thanks for the advice! MEK worked like a charm with no haze or residue.
