    Yup claying the car should sort it out. Do you not have access to a pressure washer? If you don't nip to your local Jet wash and just use high pressure rinse(do even think about using the brush) that should help remove some of it too.

    Thanks for advice guys, washed it as soon as i spotted it but no joy

    I got hold of the manager of the nursing home next door who's fence was being sprayed, he said he employed a proffesional company so he didnt have these sort of problems but he has agreed to pay for a bodyshop to repair it

    I managed to find an accident repair company locally that have had a look and said they will have to mop it,every panel has to be done,headlights,windows.The lot

    Next they will have to do a full valet to clean up from the mopping and then some sealer? sealer - wots that about?

    Get the quote tomorrow - i wonder whether the manager will be so quick to sort it out when he gets the bill cos i cant see it being cheap
