: Help!!

03-14-06, 11:56 PM
I was letting a very good friend of mine keep my car while I was overseas and just got back this month. He's a pretty trustworthy guy and good with cars, but:

Apparently he drove over some latex paint that was spilled in the road and got paint in the wheel wells of my BABY! Some of it got onto the metallic splash panels. Any recomendations as to what I should use to remove this paint from the panels. A tiny, tiny bit got onto the actual paint, too. What should I use to remove this, if anything?

Please help my car.... AHHH......I should shoot him!#!@$!@#

Correct me if i'm wrong but latex paint, can't you just peel that away with your fingernail? Doesn't it get all rubbery when it dries?

you're probably right.

As you can tell, I haven't actually tried to remove it yet. I'm thinking if that don't work bug and tar remover will probably do the trick too.
