Garden burning bin damaged paint
 
Morning all, bit of a strange one for you. Like an absolute idiot a couple of days ago I had my burning bin going getting rid of loads of cardboard, it was approx 4ft from my car (65 plate BMW 3 series)

I noticed yesterday that the car is now covered in little white marks very much alike stone chips, I tried blasting with a jetwash to no avail, have I royally messed up my paint? Could the ash/embers of burnt through the laquer ?

How would you approach this in regard to paint correction, machine polish?

Well that's a lesson learned if nothing else.

I would try first to soak it, and wash it.
If no result, try to clay and polish it, it will come off.
Probably ash with a little moisture stick to the paint.

Thanks guys, I've noticed that some of them seem to come off with my fingernail so I'll try a bit of polish tomorrow and see what happens

So a decent fire going 4 feet from your car?

Let me suggest an emoji for you :o

Why were you burning cardboard, easier to recycle it. 4ft away from the car as well? Lucky the paints still there!

I'd agree with trying this - give it a really good pre-wash / snow foam and let it soak and hopefully with a wash etc they'll go...

Fingers crossed for you :thumb:

Nice reply😂 In that case, a kitchen scourer and fairy liquid should get the marks off. 😉

Tar remover, wash then clay if still present?
