    I would start with something like SwirlX.

    +1. You're going to have to use some kind of paint cleaner to remove the stain.

    You could try working a cleanr/wax like Colorx over the surface. It has very light abrasives and chemical cleaners. Maybe the chemical cleaners will help remove the stain.

    No, SwirlX is the stronger cleaner, if it didnt, ColorX wont.

    What kind of damage is there? Any pic?

    i got simple green over spray on my fenders on my old car before...nothing seemed to really work.. it burned into the clear pretty good.. you may be out of luck.. it is always recommended you spray down your car so any type of chemical gets washed away on your wet surface..

    Just to update in case someone else has this happen, Scratch X is the cats meow... The degeaser stain is pretty much gone.

    I kept at it and after using the X and polish looking much better

    Re: Degreaser stained paint

    i just noticed my fender has stain spots that look like water stains all over the left and right fender.. nowhere else on the car. i am almost positive it is from when i cleaned my engine bay.. i sprayed the engine down ith simple green... the weird thing is that i made sure i sprayed my fenderes wet so the overspray wouldnt sit directly on the paint.. also i didnt let the simple green stay on for that long... hmmm.. anyways.. i went at it with both scratch x and Uc and they seem to work.. BUT it takes mad elbow grease.. i am leaving it for now.. i don't have a da so i have to do it by hand... you can only see it under certain angles so i am not too concerned at this point... when i feel like getting a good forearm workout ill go at it a few inches at a time... :P
