Soap and water didn't work, and my dad needs to sell his car, so I need to get some paint off. Please help it's slightly urgent.

Thumbs up

Try using your hose but make sure the pressure is up, and if possible have a nozzle. Use something like a sponge to help scrub it off...

Other than that I don't know what to say. Paint is water-soluble and solvents don't really help break it up any more than that. I had some caked-on paintballs that I left out on my patio in 100 degree heat and I was still able to wash it off a few days later.

Good luck

any decent rubbing compund / scratch remover that takes off oxidation should take care of the problem. Then just wash and wax.

i woudlnt use rubbing compound, as it will slowly strip off the clear coat. you can use any kind of car polish, wax, or scratch remover, but to not use rubbing compound, buffing compound, or anything abraisive.
