How do I remove fresh striping paint from my vehicle?
As soon as possible after getting paint from road stripes on vehicle, wash the vehicle at a car wash with a pressure wand. This will loosen and remove most of the paint unless it has dried for more than a day. If the car wash does not remove the paint, allow the vehicle to dry, and then spray the paint residue with WD-40 and allow it to stay on the area for 1-2 hours and rewash the vehicle. The WD-40 will soften the traffic paint without harming the vehicle's finish. Repeat the procedure for heavy concentrations.
NOTE: DO NOT SCRUB THE VEHICLE'S FINISH WITH A SOLVENT OR SCOURING CLEANSER AS THIS WILL DAMAGE THE FINISH!!
