    Ethanol stain on white paint!

    Hi there guys,

    So yesterday i got a call from a customer asking me if i could help him remove a Petrol stain from his BMW 1M.
    So i washed the spot with Meguiars hyper wash then i clayed the spot.
    Tried Meguiars Diamond Cut compound on a cutting pad which lightened it abit.
    Then i tried Meguiars Ultimate Compound which didn't work.

    What could you guys recommend i try.


    The stain looks like this(Taken from the MG FORUM)

    Try a chemical paint cleaner like Meg's paint cleaner, or wd40, or IPA or 3m adhesive remover.

    M105 by hand should do it. Or use a 3" wool pad will defiantly work
    Your looking at a stain. As in the gas is in the paint and needs to be removed.
    You might even sand it with 3000 grit sand paper.
