    Default I don't believe it!

    Further to my recent incident where I suspect some local young toerag fell off his bike and clattered down the side of my car causing a small dent and some scratches...

    and further to last weeks incident where I managed to clip a cone on the motorway due to poor signage, which resulted in a scuffed front bumper...

    ... yesterday I found out I have picked up some white paint from somewhere and now have little splatter marks down the side of my car! It doesn't want to come off very easily either!

    I suppose on the bright side, all the above has happened on the same side

    Anyway, any suggestions how to remove white road marking paint from a red car without knackering the original finish?

    All of the above will work in some way mate. The clay will be the safest (you'll probably need some heavy stuff). You have PM

    Id use some T-Cut but start with a small amount, and rub it in, in a circular motion. Then use autoglym super resin ploish on the top.

    If it still aint out, T-Cut it again.

    I had to do that with my old black SXI, as some dick at Chester race course got white paint splatters all up the bonnet.

    (They were painting the rafters in the wind, but i had no evidence to prove it)
