Is it possible to remove paint from the bodywork? I have some paint on my quarter panel & a small bit on my alloys aswell. Was wondering if there's any way i could remove this?

Cheers,

Chris :thumbs:

yeh, when i got my black C wonderfully sprayed with white overspray from a neighbours house i used white spriti to get it off (and it was ALL OVER the car) lots of little white specks looked AWEFUL!!
Just becareful not to rub too hard as otherwise it'll fade the car's paint underneath. I used lots of polish etc after we did it to bring back the shine before protecting the paint and waxing it - looks great now :thumbs:
