I would try to buff it out. If you go to Advanced Auto or Auto Zone or something like that, you should be able to get a buffing pad and some of that cream to put on it. If it didn’t break the paint on your car, you should be good to go.

Yikes, sorry that happened! You may be able to buff it out. I hope so anyway!

Reminds me of last summer when I decided to share a ride with my husband for work for a few days so my car was left in our aparment’s lot where we were living at the time. The next time I drove myself, I noticed later that day that there was a nice overspray of paint ALL over my entire car. I still don’t know how it happened, but we guessed that someone may have been spray painting or something on a balcony and the wind carried it. We spent a good 4 or 5 hours using a clay bar on the car to get it off. It worked great on the paint, but I can still see it where it got on anything plastic. What a nightmare.

So, yeah, I’d probably try a Mother’s or Meguiars clay bar, and if that doesn’t work, maybe pick up a rubbing compound.

Good luck!

WE JUST CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!

Lol, sorry, I feel like every time I get something nice and shiny, I destroy it too. Hopefully you’ll be able to get it fixed up just like new!
