So I was driving on the interstate and this 18 wheeler's tire comes off and hit 2 cars in front of me..bounced off of theirs and hit mine. It put a hole in my windshield and left streaks on my car's paint. Not worried about the windshield, insurance is going to take care of that. My question is, does anyone know how to get these streaks off the paint? It only comes off when I scratch it and I don't want to scratch my paint off. Thanks for any help

Wow :eek:

Yeah my best bet would be clay too, maybe some tarminator or citrus degreaser as well.

Remember there are different aggresion of clay.
Would you agree that the Clay Magic kit would work, or do you thing a more aggressive clay would be better? I was thinking a more aggressive clay would be nice, but the likelyhood of him finding any from a retail store would be slim... That and the TS has apparently never used clay.

Have you went to a auto paint supplie shop. If you have a mild clay. Try that first. If that doesn't work then move onto the more aggresive clay. But also don't forget to see if a cleaner polish works.

thats what i was thinking...

but if not, i guess just clay it as long as the tire didnt leave any dents on your bumper/hood/fender. it couldve scratched your paint too.... but i guess it wouldnt be very noticeable since your car's white
