Best way to remove these paint marks

Hi all,

Some kind soul drove into my wife's car when she was parked at work the other day. Needless to say they didn't stop or leave a note.

Anyway I need some advice for the best way to remove it please.











Thanks in advance.

Paint Transfer...use a magic sponge and some APC or similar....should come off...the sponge is a mild abrasive so take your time.

What Robbi said...alternative is a paint cleanser or a mild abrassive polish.

Tar and glue remover then you will see any further damage then.

Thanks guys for the suggestions.

I have some tar and glue remover, some paint cleanser and polish so I will try those options.

I'm hoping it's not too bad underneath the paint but we will see.

Hope you get it sorted, maybe a cutting polish or paint renovator if you still have some remaining after your above options tried.

Suser resin polish should do the trick if you have some laying about. Have used it myself in situations like this with success.

Yes good luck with that, sometimes it looks much worse than it actually is. Seems to be a lot of paint transfer, so you may have been lucky......fingers crossed

I'd use clay and then polish. Goodluck sorting it.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions.

Managed to remove the paint this morning. I used a microfibre pad and some Auto Finesse Tripple.

The wheel and arch came up fine. Luckily no scratches apart from the pre existing ones.





Bit of a scuff on the front bumper but to be honest there are a fair few marks all over the car so needs a good machine polish anyway.





Thanks again. Happy detailing.
