    How to remove black marker pen from paintwork?

    Have a friend whose car was vandalised at the weekend. They drew a big line down it with black marker pen. Said I would ask here if anyone knows if it can be removed with white spirit or something like that. Any help would be appreciated... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    I think WHite spirit may be too harsh as it is in a paint striper.

    Gently try and buff it out first with your normal T-cutting compounds.

    Wouldn't try white spirit but your normal T-cut should do the trick.

    This happened to me once on my Mr2 when some little B****** decided it would be funny to write his initials on the pop up headlights.

    The car was red and it was black marker pen but T-cut metallic managed to take it off without too much bother.

    Remember to give it a good polish and wax after the T-cut to protect it though.

    Good luck

    White spirit should be safe, or WD40, which is actually white spirt, or similar. Try Autoglym intensive tar remover it's a fantastic product for removing adhesive, tar, and some inks, and is absolutely safe for paintwork. If you use a t-cut type compound, i sugeest smearing it over the ink, letting it soak in for a while and then gently rubing using long strokes (matron) so as not to risk rubbing through in small areas.
