Paint on paint!


Restricted Account
Hi Guys. My s3 was parked in work yesterday (outside)

On jumping in the car i noticed small specs of red paint on my bonnet! It turns out the yard next door have been spray painting outside!

I have to go and see the manager on Tuesday to see if they will pay to ammend the damage.

Is there anything in the meantime i can do to try and remove it? Clay bar? Or am i best off leaving it and see if they will pay to have it done professionally?

To be honest if they are paying for it, I'd take it to someone to do! Why risk doing it yourself to save them a few quid?!?!? If you damaged it you'd be gutted.

Try some IPA and wipe off with a MF, as it is essentially white spirit/paint thinners. Basically a petroleum based solvent.

What a pain, sorry to hear that. When you say they were spraying, what were they spraying? Could it be a water based product?

Tbh if it was me I would leave well alone and see what the company say next week. Make a call from there
