Hmm, pic might help.

BTW - avoid dealers 'paint guard' it is basically a wax/polish job with a high price tag.

If they are not perfect, don't except some dealer excuse. Make the dealer redo them.

A claybar or a cleaner wax like Zymol should remove any contaminates.

I wouldn't recommend using clay bar on vinyl stripes. However, I am using
Meguiar's Instant Detailer and a clean microfiber towel to touch up entire car between washings. It seems to work well with making the matte black stripes look like new.
It actually keeps smudges and water spots from being a problem.
I have been doing this for over a month now.
Hope this helps.
