So I purchased a new beater last night. Rule one never buy a car at night. and there is this awesome spray painted picture of a penis on the roof. How does one try to go about removing it?




The overall paint condition is not the greatest. There is some cracking in the clear coat and I doubt it has ever been washed as it was a fleet truck.

Start with clay bar I guess. Or you could just rock it

My sister in law had her car spray painted one night. She said she wiped it off with gas. Just a thought. Maybe try a small spot.

Clay bar will probably do it. As long as it was cheap shit spray paint.

Fits the current driver tho.

As others have mentioned, start with a claybar.

Theres a video that recently started circulating showing the removal of spray paint using nothing more than a liquid wax. Its not a solution to all spray paints, some will withstand wax and if its been on for awhile it will almost have no effect.

A heavy cutting pad and a moderate polish has done well for me in the past, and method of last resort - paint thinner or mineral spirits used cautiously and flushed well with water and soap afterwards, but exhaust your other options before jumping to that.

Also another try is oven cleaner. I use it to take off enamel pinstriping paint. Should work with spray paint.

I use the aerosol stuff. Spray on and let sit for 3-4 minutes. Then wipe down with microfiber cloth. Repeat until paint is gone. Then neutralize really well with soap and water.
But I'm sure one of the other less extreme options will work. If you use oven cleaner though, make sure to wear gloves.

Get some graffiti remover and then wash it and clay it to make sure it's all gone.

Or get a shop to clear over it for everlasting awesomeness.

Le penis is gone. Used wd40 and it came right off. Less than 5 minutes total.
