try silicone spray. Spray it on. Let soak in. Then buff off.

I'm curious why you would use fast orange to clean your side panels. I've never heard of using fast orange to clean anything other than hands. Isn't fast orange gritty?

I use a sponge and dish soap, puts a nice shine on it until you touch it.
