    Default Leather and Bodywork Paint Removal?

    Can anyone advise please? Last week i managed to pick some white paint up on my coat (how and where i ain't got a clue) and quite a few spots ended up on the drivers seat (leather) and a few odd spots have ended up on the bodywork, really pi**ed me off! Have tried rubbing off the leather with a dose of turps but no joy. What's the best way to get rid, from the seats AND the bodywork? Cheers lads.

    Can't help on the cow hide I'm afraid. However, on your paint you can use clay. Not the potters clay but automotive detailing clay. http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/detailing-clay/cat_9.html

    Using a lube, you can remove paint contaminants without maring the clear coat.

    Detritus.

    It looks like but don't qoute me on it Lump ordinary household gloss type paint. It's so damn annoying mate as i honestly have not got a clue where the heck it came from? Started from a black coat i had on, from there to the drivers seat and on some of the bodywork. Perhaps i've been leaned against summat that's recently been painted, certainly not from my house.

    get some window green polish, it has ammonia and a light abrasive in it. use that on the the leather. but go easy. on the paint get a med cutting compound and again go easy. or if your brave 2500 paper on it
