Really Bad Stuff on Rock Guard

I got into something on the last trip and I have small grey raised spots on the rock guards. This stuff is really stuck on, almost looks like like cement splatter. I have tried a couple of the usual recipes with almost no luck and I am afraid of scratching the stainless.

Any ideas?

If it is cement splatter, it may come off with a very fine 3M pad (white) soaked in vinegar.

Soak the 'blob' in vinegar first, then rub in the direction of the grain, very gently, and rinse out the pad constantly to keep from scratching things with stuff embedded in the pad.

Try in a inconspicuous area first. Vinegar should not hurt the stainless steel. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to get the vinegar residue off.

Welcome Aboard!! 🥂👍

First thing I always try...WD-40. Soak well, let set & wipe with microfiber.
