: Oh No! Fresh paint on the road

My Cascada is black and I ran over freshly painted white lines. It splattered the driver's side of course. Any good advice out there on how to remove it without destroying my finish?

I read online that spreading petroleum jelly on the splatter and letting it soak in for 10 hours might work. It is too cold out now to try it.

I don't know the answer to your question but I would assume that the collision shop at the dealer would. They would be the first people I would ask for a solution. I would also trust their advice before anyone else's. Good luck and keep us posted.

Ok. How did you get the paint off?

A few few years ago, I had a Genesis. Ran over fresh white paint that spilled off of a bucket off a truck. Pulled into a parking lot and wiped the heavy paint off with a rag. When I got home, I mixed some rubbing compound with liquid polish. (To thin the compound). Took off the white paint without harming the car paint.

What I did have trouble with was removing the paint on the tires. Can't remember exactly how I did it, but I think I wiped with paint thinner, then scrubbing with soap and water.

After looking it up on the internet I tried soaking the painted area in petroleum jelly but along with not working it was hard to remove. Another attempt was using a clay bar but that didn't work either.

But, oh yes, finally I had success using a product called Get Off Clean from Go Clean Products. I bought a 32 fl oz bottle for $60, four sponges with plastic mesh on one side from Walmart, and within 3 hours the road paint was gone.

I can finally after six months walk up to the driver's side and not cringe at the site of white paint on my black Cascada.
