Exclamation Paint Emergency!

I got some of that good ole Texas mud on my car, wasnt able to wash it off right away due to my work schedule. Anyways I washed it this morning and theres spots everywhere! I tried using vinegar and water and they didnt come off, tried waxing a small portion to see if that would help, didnt work. I am at a loss here guys I have black paint and the car looks like crap right now... Please help!

Not to worry, just pick up some Mothers Clay Bar at your local auto shop and that will come right off.

If the clay bar doesnt work then it is possible that somehow the mud had some kind of chemicals in it.

If thats the case then you should use a very light abraisive to get the spots off.

3m Swirl Mark Remover for Dark cars would work well.

If you still can't get it off go to www.autopia-carport.com and post your problem in autopia university, many members there have been through worse stuff than mud.

that must have been some seriously mutated dirt to do that to your paint! - what color is your car anyways?

the mud in the southern states is slightly more acidic than the normal northern topsoil. MBP is the color

right on with the claybar. try dat first then either a scratchx type abrasive, or some meguires cleaner wax might do the trick.

I have never used the clay bar, but the Meguiar's Paint cleaner works well.

I have had some scratches and birdshi+ on my paint and I use

Meguiar's Paint cleaner followed by

Meguiar's Paint polish followed by

Mother's Carnuba Wax and my blemishes are gone.

Good Luck
