Paint on bodywork - scott1s
Time for a game of spot the numpty. After a bit of exuberant DIY, despite my best efforts I now have spots of undercoat over the car. What is the best way to remove these? Thinners and T-cut, or patience, long fingernails and elbow grease?
Don't be too hard on me please . . . . . .;->

04 plate Primera and 03 plate A4. Both metallic

Was the undercoat oil based, or water based?

If it were me, first I would try white spirits, followed by a good polish / wax afterwards, regardless of sucess or not.

You can get t-cut that is specifically made for metallic. Go careful with it though, otherwise you'll remove the laquer that's covering the metallic paint. Again, a good polish / wax afterwards.

A clay bar will remove these a treat, Halfords sell the Meguires Quick Clay kit.

You will be amazed at what it removes!!

Yep, a clay bar should shift it.
Follow the instructions carefully.
Don´t drop it on your gravel driveway (if you have one....).
