Paint on the body work

Just went to take the dog out for her nightly walk and some ****er has chucked white paint all over the bonnet of my wonderful bella. The paint is still wet so was recently done

Does anyone know how to get the paint of without it messing the paint work?

Some ****** jealous ****** toe ****** rag

I sincerely hope it is emulsion type paint - I imagine that will come off easier than gloss type - other than that I cannot offer advice, only sympathy & support sorry

Re: Paint on the body work

Anything you can find . Wipe some off take it to a sink and run a tap on it . A lot of diy paint today are water based even glosses if it is waterbased put hot water over it.

Good luck

Re: Paint on the body work

By "emulsion" do you mean water based - what we call a PVA here.

You should be able to wash it off with copious amounts of water. You will need to clay, polish and wax afterwards.

If it is Oil based - You are a bit knackered. You can try mopping it up with Turps on lots and lots of cloths

If it is "Thinners" based, you are REALLY knackered. I simply cannot imagine how to clean it off.

Re: Paint on the body work

Emulsion/PVA... lots of water. Cold if it's wet.. hot if it's dried on.

Gloss.. Use parafin/kerosene/White spirit or brush cleaner. None of these will attack your car's paint.

Hammerite etc. Use Hammerite thinners or acetone. You may have to dab this on, let it "soak" (though Hammer' isn't absorbent, per se) and then rub it off gently..

My guess is that it's emulsion paint though.. it's cheap and the most common type of paint and the cheapest to buy (a pro' decorator tends to look after his "gloss", whereas emulsion if £10 for a bucket .. so more likely to be left lying around).

Once you're done, you should clay and wax the area.

Obviously as you've been keeping your car well waxed up until now, the paint removal will be a lot easier than if you hadn't.
