Re: Egg Removal

What'd you do? It's not even Halloween yet...

Remove it quickly! Heavy soap to lift the egg off the paint and gentle continuous scrubbing and it should come off.. the hard parts you can use a clay bar and some quick detailer then wash it again..

Re: Egg Removal

oh man....this sucks! Wash it immediately! The sad part is the eggs probably left what I call "egg dings" Its gonna take some work to get rid of those from your clearcoat. Do you have experience using any kind of compound or polish?

Re: Egg Removal

Doesnt look like they hit it dead on .. more of a drive by the way its all over the side.. Dont see any dings!!

No experience in either but i always wanted to learn, guess nows a better time than ever huh

Gonna use super hot water to soften it up along w/ some car wash soap, just afraid that its so hard now im gonna end up scratchin the paint .....
GAH

Also the stock skirts are stained white where the egg is, hope it doesnt stay on like wax does.

Re: Egg Removal

Use armor all for the skirts.. and since they're plastic don't be afraid to scrub hard at them with a towel.

The hot water is a great idea, the yolk should break apart much easier.

Re: Egg Removal

do not use armor all on anything...sorry ryano. It will set the stain in the plastic. The soap should get it off.....if not let me know. there are products to remove stains from plastic like that.

Re: Egg Removal

its the shells that does the damage....I think you can get most of that out though. I suggest trying some Meguiers scratchx first. It can be found at most auto parst stores.

Re: Egg Removal

you may want to buy some swirlx as well to use after the scratchx. I would then top it witht he wax or sealant of your choice
