is there a way to remove cement from my paint? there is a bunch of construction where i live and i somehow manage to get cement on my rear quarter panel. This is cement that is dried onto the car ( just noticed today). theres about a 2" long and a 1/2"wide mark and is about 1/8" thick. Whats the best way to remove it? is there a alternative to scrapping it off along with the paint? all opinions and options will be well appreciated.

you can get a clay bar at any automotive store (ex. autozone, kragens, etc.). i am not sure a clay bar will work if it is a solid slab of cement. that is ur best bet. otherwise you will prob have to chip it off. gl

ok so automotive paint store it is. also ive read that white distill vinager will break down the cement, u guys think this is true.
Yes and no.

If you drove through a construction zone and there was cement in the water in a puddle you splashed, yes, vinegar works.
This is when it looks like a gray hazy mark.

If a blob of cement actually hardened on your car: no. There are things considerably more acidic than vinegar in rain, and I don't see the buildings melting.

Cement is also very corrosive when it's setting, so you are probably going to need a repaint on that panel.
You should try to pull off what you can, claybar the rest, polish and pray.
