      Help required: Removing paint marks

      Hi, we have a blue Hyundai Getz in our home. Last week my dad went to a place where there were some overhead gas pipelines. Some workers were painting those pipelines and unfortunately some paint splash fell on our car when my dad was crossing that section. The paint fell on the passenger side orvm. Can this paint mark be removed. If yes how to do it? The variations in the image colors is because of the camera flash. Thanks

      Yes , But being a week old I more work would be required ,Why didn't you clean at that time only ?

      Get a bucket of water wash the car specially the ORVM . If you can arrange car shampoo or use LUX (SLIGHTLY ) foam for thorough cleaning .

      I was not at home at that time and my dad did not inform me about this. I saw the paint yesterday only. I have a car shampoo (Formula 1) and polish (Megs UP). Will clean it today. Dont want the car's original paint to be damaged when trying to remove this mark.

      I dont think its difficult. When they paint pipes they normal paint and I would think they use a turpentine base. Just use a damp cloth soaked in white spirit or turpentine and gentle rub it away.
      This wont damage the car paint but dont use thinners.

      Great , Wash car thoroughly with it . If It dose not work , then Try diesel or nail-polish remover (acetone). Paint it on to the patches with a paintbrush (don't get it on painted surfaces), then wipe off immediately with a clean dry cloth. Repeat if necessary. Rub on a propreitory plastic polish (such as dashboard polish) once the job is done.

      buy some thinner used for paint. use it in very less quantity. As large quantity can damage clear coat. rub lightly.dont use in sunlight or when car panel is hot. use in shade.
      Why do people post I want the best for my car... When there isn't anything that is the best on the car to begin with.

      ^^ diesel is the best solvent to remove any paint or sticky stains on your car.

      Nail polish/diesel/crude oil/whatever might help remove paint transfer where some fine dry paint particles from the other vehicle sticks on yours by accidental contact. What you have on your ORVM is wet paint that possibly has cured fully by now. You will need to sand and smoothen out the area, and repaint.

      Have also tried thinner but of no use.

      I think this is what happened in this case. Since my dad kept the car under the sun for a few days, the paint has cured fully. Repainting will be the only solution i guess in this case.
