Egg Removal
 
So i woke up this afternoon to find my car covered in egg :mad::mad::mad::mad:

Can anyone suggest the best way to remove it?

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..

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?

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 :lol:

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.

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.

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.

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
