    Removing White Line Road Paint Spots

    How do you remove white line road paint from matte carbon fibre?
    Used clay bar but has left faint residue and thereafter tried 3M adhesive cleaner, WD40 and white spirit
    Can anyone help?

    I think white road paint is latex based.

    Have you tried tar remover ?

    Found these videos on line paint removal.

    As above, I would try Auto Glym Intensive Tar Remover. I find it gets rid of most marks without being aggressive.

    Maybe a question for one of the detailing forums then.

    In this video link the guy uses a type of vaseline leaving it on overnight to soften.

    Definitely worth watching.

    Re: Removing White Line Road Paint Spots

    i own an auto body shop and we've had quite a few customers come in with line paint on their cars, a product called "goof off" has proven to work better than anything else i can buy from any of my jobbers. i'd try it on an inconspicuous area first to test it out, as i've never encountered it on carbon fiber, but it works great on painted parts as well as unpainted plastics.
