    Default Splashes of paint on bodywork!!

    My Brother has just driver his Black Zafira through some green paint which workmen had spilled onto the road.
    It has splashed up onto the wheel arch and wing, in little flecks of Green paint.
    Does anyone know how to remove this or is it a job for the body shop???
    Cheers.

    Try some spirit wipe( NOT white spirit), the stuff from car paint manufacturers like Autopaint(or any good motor spares outlet with a paint/filler section). Use on a Dry lint cloth, use very little so its bearly damp. then using quick pass overs go over the offending paint(DO NOT RUB HARD, ONLY LIGHT PASSES LIKE DUSTING). Do try on an unseen part first like under bonnet of door opening to see the result. It should be fine as Spirit Wipe is/was used to clean body parts prior to painting. Afterwards use a good quality polish after t-cut if appropiate.

    Things have moved on since I painted cars with such water based paints etc.

    Good luck

    Clay bar on dried paint he'll be there all year, thinners on a cloth wont harm anything and as marko said automotive thinners not your house hold stuff.
