    Car Boot - Marks

    Ive already washed and T cut my car last week and am not sure but I only noticed them after taking my car to a garage a few months back after they sprayed and sorted my rear bumper out. Although I honestly cant recall if they were there prior to the work being done or if its me with the hot weather however I've used my car inc boot etc and there aren't any other marks like that on the boot

    Long story short

    1.) what can I do to get rid of the marks?

    2.) would it be worth while asking the garage or just sort it out myself ?

    Thanks

    That's weird finger marks. Tcut should take the top layer off so is it under the lacquer

    Finger print yourself and see if its your print

    If you use T-Cut, use the metallic version. It's not as harsh, and just works on the lacquer rather than cutting through it.

    That is suncream.

    You will probably find that the marks belong to you or your nearest and dearest.

    You will also have sod all chance of them ever going fully.

    The particle size of suncream gets between the paint polymers.

    Tcut and all the rest do make a difference for a while and with repeated effort you may get somewhere eventually.

    Sorry to bear bad news.

    It might be worth posting your question (and photos) on the CleanYourCar or DetailingWorld forums. Someone there should be able to give you more suggestions.

    Do you have any Isopropyl Alcohol you can try?

    Edit. eBay is a lot cheaper than Maplins if you need to buy some.

    I haven't had any issues cleaning things with IPA in the past (although I mainly use it on computers). It might be worth putting a small amount on a cotton bud to start with.

    Depending on when the paint was done, (older than 5 years old) IPA will ruin the paintwork laquer and make it bubble up, ruining the coat. Not worth doing that unless you plan to respray the section after. Learnt from experience on this one.
