The apartment complex I live in hired a outside company about a year ago to come repaint the lines in our parking lot, and they tried to do the right thing by coving my car with there own car cover. But the car cover was a p.o.s and didnt really stop any of the paint and its not very good paint as I can scratch it off with a finger nail but Ive taken it to a car wash and etc. but nothing makes it come off and I'm worried about destroying my paint if i try something too rough to get the paint off does anyone have any ideas on how to get this paint off?

A plastic razor and some tar remover helps. Just be careful with the razor. We used to use this method for detailing cars at the dealership I worked at. Got paint, tar, road grime, and stickers off like a charm.

:thumbsup:gasoline on a rag. will take off the unwanted paint without hurting your clearcoat. Works wonders for removing stickers/tar/paint etc.

No topher I haven't tried a claybar yet ill give it a shot this weekend I bought a sponge meant for cars but im skeptical to use it there's like some webbing on one side and a regular sponge on the other I think that will scratch the paint, ill try the claybar and plastic razor this weekend, where do I get a plastic razor?

I know this may sounds stupid but had do you use a clay bar? And do you think one bar could do a whole car?

Um. No. You don't want to buff a surface unless it is completely free of contaminates, or you will be scratching and/or grinding it in.

Use clay, with a bottle of soapy water for lube for the clay.
