Help! Purple Discoloration After Diffuser Removal!

Hello everyone,

My car is 04 and black.

I was wondering if anyone could help me find a product or way to remove some purple discoloration that ended up when I removed the plastic diffuser of my e55.

The story:

I removed the plastic rear diffuser of my car because it turned from black to light gray because of age. Underneath is supposed to be fresh paint, and when I did, I noticed streaks and lines of purple around where the double sided adhesive tape was used to mount the plastic diffuser. I'm wondering if there is any product to take this out, or if it could be buffered out?

try some of the varoius cleaner waxes on the market, then go up in terms of aggressive ness. or you could just repaint the diffuser black and reinstall it.
