I need some help! Some "highly intelligent" and "seriously jealous" (I hope you can hear the type dripping with sarcasm, folks) !^%@$#*&! felt compelled to take some sort of permenant black marker and write across the hood of my 67 vert (the words of which are not printable here) I have tried everything that I can think of that will not ruin the paint on my baby and it will not come off. Any suggestions????

if the clay bar doesn't work, try bug and tar remover. This will strip all the wax off the area, and hopefully the writing is ontop of a nive thick coat of wax

I know you can get marker off of a white board by going over it with a dry erase marker. I would try it in a spot that doesn't show first ::

Have you considered "Goof Off", an overspray and adhesive remover? It's available in most home improvement stores and does a good job on furniture, etc. Good luck.

Goop non abrasive handcleaner seems to take anything off my hands, a little on a rag might work for you.

This may sound strange, but try Brasso. It will not scratch the paint and leaves an amazing shine.

It's also good on chrome.

Get yourself some A-BEN-A-QUI. Made up here in VT. Works great. Of course, my company sells it. Check it out on the web.

Well, I did try a few of your suggestions....from bug and tar remover to laquer thinner....to prep-sol. Nothing,,,zilch....nada! There she stayed...4 inch ugly black letters and me getting madder with each glance at them. Ended up taking up to a friend of mine, he asked to see it when he found out about it. Does body/paint work for Mazzaratti and Lamboughini, among others........said it was not ordinary black marker as it bled right thru the wax and top coat, right into the paint it's self....ended up that we did a bit of wet sanding.....got most of it out, faded what would not come out so that it was at least driveable....unfortunately now it will need a paint job come colder weather when we put the old girl back in the paddock for the winter. Thanks again for all yo ur suggestions.

Ken

PS: Just wait till I get my hands on the nimrod that's responsible for this vandalism...GRRRrrrrrrrrrrrr!
