Why do people do such stupid things?? sorry to hear that man, I don't know if it can be buffed out or anything, as far as I know, egg is acidic and doesn't play well with clear coat, don't take my word for that though.

They target our cars because we can build boost at 12mph.

But on the serious side, I hate people who do stupid things like that. Good luck with the eggs. Did the egg also crack your paint? Last time my friend's car got egged, the paint was littered with little oval paint chips.

Is the clear coat damaged, or is there just buildup on top of it? Or can you not tell? I'd suggest some harsh (but clear coat safe) cleaners first, or at the very least a good soaking with water and soap to soften it up.

your best bet is try and use a clear coat safe hardcore cleaner (expensive as hell usually) if that doesnt work,...... you'll have to get it recleared

i got egged not too long ago, but luckily they just hit the windows, no damage, but it somehow got in between the door and body and it smelled for awhile....


sorry to hear about ur paint, but im sure a little bit of work and some touch up paint will do good!

Looks like California should be nicknamed eggland. I think the egg enzymes soften the paint and etch it = even if successfully buffed out, the paint may always be fragile in that area for chipping off. As a final step of cleaning the mess, use a microfiber cloth and soap & water.

Remove shell/yoke/white by hand with ,microfiber towel as a mit like method.
mix 50/50 water and vinegar.
Soak it [mix ] in microfiber cloths [rt aid roll of 3 MF cloths for 2.99 hard to beat that price].
lay over mess, let sit 15 to 20 mins
then use cloth to mit it up again w/out swipes as to prevent scratches.

repeat whole process for stubborn spots
[also put mix of water vinegar in spray bottle to keep saturating through out process.
good luck.the 1 week sitting is the worst thing .

get some clay fast and try to get it off asap. if that doesn't work, try a chemical cleaner like klasse AIO, zaino AIO, FK1 AIO. if that doesn't work, you're going to have to go to a detailer for some abrasive polishes

....I would soak the area first to try to soften it up as Gargoyle suggests. Bug & tar remover may help.

There are two types of damage you could be looking at. 1) damage from the egg shell (typically leaves a pattern of small chips from impact). 2) damage from the egg after sitting on the paint (apparently, damage can occur in as little as a couple of hours so I would expect the worst in your case).

either way, i think you are in trouble. the egg itself is bad, and (speaking from personal experience) when you get the egg all off, those round-oval shaped chip patterns the shell caused ruin it. The shell is really sharp and cuts not only the clearcoat, but the paint as well.

good luck. I hate when people damage things for fun

My car got egged last year and I have like 3 or 4 of those on all different panels . It happened at like 4 AM and I didn't get it off until my roommate called me and woke me up at 10:30 AM and told me his ('04 WRX) and mine both got egged, out of a parking lot of ~20 cars, ours were the only ones egged .

Friday night someone spray painted three cars in the parking lot, but mine evaded this time .

Default Egged Car...

Yeah I've had my car egged twice, and I would love to catch the bastards that do it. Fortunately for me, it was only overnight, sorry to hear that yours went a week like that. My car is Bright White and it took some time to get it all out. With it all said and done, I had to get it clear coated again anyway due to some paint chips and some touch-up. I believe it's just out of jealousy that they do it, so feel good that you have it and they don't, lol

If the surface is stained but the paint itself seems solid, could you cover the damage with a stripe or a well-placed decal?

I know it's a band-aid but could buy some time until you can get it re-sprayed and protect the area for now...

...still no excuse for damaging some one else's property.

I had that happen to me once. There was nothing I could do about it as the damage went through the clear coat. I tried buffing it out but to no avail. I just left it alone.
