Paint safe maker pens

Who’s on this? I’m after some paint safe maker pens, ones that show up bright and wipe off easy.

Chinograph Pencils, are a safe option.

I’d be weary of using chinographs! I had a colleague who thought it was funny to draw a cartoon character on a windscreen on a previous car of mine. Despite being cleaned off, every time the windscreen misted up I could see it appear. It will leave something on the paint that could show when you think it’s gone!

I usually mark areas of concern with a small piece of pre used/left over masking tape but I guess if you want to draw circles around things you could probably use a white board marker, there’s nothing harsh in the ink and will easily clean up with panel wipe or similar.

Yes, a decent soft tip white board marker works well.

Agree, the wax will need to be worked out.
