    White road paint removal from carf paint

    I had a client of mine cintact me saying they ran over those dreaded white road lines while being painted( you know the trucks you follow that say STAY OFF LINE!!) lol and got splatter all over the passenger side and inside the wheel well. Which is the best to remove this without harming the paint or wheel wells? I've never ran into the road paint issue yet. I do believe it is recent within a month, so it's not been on there a long time. I do have some Stoner tarminator, would that be worth a shot or does someone have another good fix??

    Her car is a Dark blue Dodge Caravan!

    Had a co-worker use Goof Off and a fair bit of scrubbing. I'm sure it left marring behind though, but he didnt care...

    Wd should pull it but if not some lacquer thinner will or 3m General adhesive remover will take care of it as well.
    Even the best cars look like junk when they are not clean

    I got a good dose of fresh yellow paint all over one side of my car doors windows trim the whole kit and caboodle - after I stopped crying(im serious I wept)I went at it UD on the wet area's then as the sun came up (don't ask)I realized the full extent of the mess and started at it with a power hose and power soap -finally got down to the stubburn stuff which was holding on to the trim like alien nanites and used Varsol was nervous as hell but it took the **** of and did not damage anything - now the bad news it took 3 days for 30% of a Ford Escape.

    I'd go with lacquerer thinner. That paint is like plastic. One WW will take you hours to clean.
    Good luck.

    Now I gotta figure out what the heck to charge her, lol Maybe by hour or one flat rate no matter how long. Hmmm decisions decisions. It wouldn't be so bad if I had done the polish and wax this year, but her van was done last year. Bah

    $150ish? you'll know after the first WW how to get the job then and by the forth one you'll be an expert.

    Re: White road paint removal from carf paint

    I may have her drive it to work, since she's a co-worker. It's her moms van. And maybe at lunch I can plop a few things on it during lunch to see if anything knocks it off. I don't want it to go too long without me fixing it, it'll only be harder to remove the longer it's on there. Problem to Is I'll be out of town this week from July 11th - 16th. I should have asked her to drive it to work tomorrow, DOH. lol

    Oh well. We'll see. Oh yeah what does WW stand for? Still learning online acronyms, lol

    Stoner's Xenit.

    This was recommended by Mike Phillips last week. I (personally) don't have experience using it.
