Default CWP Paint Stained Area

Hey all,

Got to my car after work and noticed blue residue on the side of my door. I thought another car may have dinged it at first sight. Didn't find any ding but this blue residue looks like it embedded its self into the clear coat. I used some wind shield fluid and a microfiber cloth to wipe it off, but that didn't work.



After searching around, some folks mentioned to clay bar, goo off, Meguiars 7 and 9. What are your suggestions? It's a pain to see your clean car with any type of markings on it.

Thanks

Clay bar first, if that doesn't work use a tiny dab of a fine grade polish.

Get a NanoSkin autoscrub Clay towel. Get some Glide lubricant. You can clay your entire car in 30 mins with it. Will get all the crap out of your paint with out the back breaking effort of using a clay bar....

I'll try using the clay bar first. I actually just ordered the one from Griot last week, waiting for it to arrive. It was meant to be lol..

Thanks for the suggestion, this is my first time hearing about the NanoSkin clay towel. Looks like it has really good reviews. Since it's 12" x 12" are you folding it and using each side or are you treating it as a rag and wiping down areas? As for the glide lubricant, what brand are you using?

I use the stuff called Glide.. you dilute it 7-1 or even 10-1. As far as the towel goes i just fold it in 4's and works like a charm. You can't tear it or cut it. I had a ton of rail dust in my paint and this just pulled it right out with zero effort. You dont' have to buy from auto-geek but here is the link to the Glide stuff.

After using the clay bar, blue paint didn't come off just a little. I'm going to resort to polish now from Meguiars. Will update when I complete this.

Ah this stubborn mark. I used Meguiar's Clear Coat Safe Rubbing Compound. It did fade away after putting in some elbow grease on a micro fiber. I'll try again when the weather gets warmer. The mark is not really noticeable unless you look really close. I'm a bit hesitant of trying Goo Gone.

Can anybody vouch for Goo Gone?

Took a look at the marking on my door and noticed the blemish going away. Decided to apply some more rubbing compound and here is the final result.



I used a microfiber cloth and some extra elbow grease and focused on this small area. There remains a small spec that I can live with. As the temp. gets warmer, I will go at it again. I would recommend Meguiar's Clear Coat Safe Rubbing Compound that comes in a small jug. I also tried buffing out some scratches on a C300 and the scruff marks are not even noticeable anymore.

Thanks for the info kind gentleman of NASIOC.

I did search for goo gone posts and that was why I was a bit hesitant in using it. Not everybody had the results they were looking for. I didn't find any posts referencing scruffs and the info I provided here will give other users insight on what they can try and it sure worked without damaging their paint.
