Chemical burn on paintwork

Hi. My brother has asked me to look at his Porsche. He had it washed at one of those car wash places that are starting up on the side of the road and they have spilt some super strong traffic film remover on it and it’s left a mark the size of your hand on the paint work. It looks like it’s bleached the paint.

Any recommendations to remove it or hide it?

Thanks

The harsh caustic these places use are not good for any type of paint

Use a fine polish to remove it. Can be done by hand or machine.

All sorted now.

2 stage polish and it’s looking like new.
