    a good cut and polish should get it out......remember to do the whole car when you do it, to keep it in balance........

    otherwise id imagine a good mobile car detailing company wouldnt charge to much to remove it.......

    Try using some brasso and a very soft cloth, this should polish away the white, then use car colour matched auto polish and you should get away with this unless the underlying red coat has been badly scored. Do small areas at a time.

    wash car and refinish with your favourite car polish. Note if you original paint was clear coated, that can also be repaired and recoated, but takes cleaning with Prepsol and some skill in application of new clearcoat. If you doubt your skill in applying canned clearcote it may be better to get professional advice.

    Good luck Ken

    I've always found that the old 'T-Cut' brand restoring/cutting polish is pretty good - it has no abrasives, but will remove the white and then your standard polish will restore it to a good shine. Good gear.

    House paint is not the same as car enamel, try using mineral turps on a rag buffing the white paint for a few seconds and see if it starts to remove it. this will work if the original paint has not been compomised.

    Good point Goodwin, if it hasnt really stuck well, maybe you can just rub it off with your finger or maybe even a soft rubber eraser?

    Just make sure you wash well & remove all dust etc so you dont scratch it!
