Skunk Spray Stained Vehicle Paint

By Paul voit 1

My car was sprayed by a skunk and it visibly stained the paint. Any ideas on how to remove the stain? I have tried a finish restorer and a commercial grade tar and road grime cleaner.

I have never had this happen to me but I have an idea. A friend of mine used one of those "Magic Erasers" to fix a scratch on her car (or to make it less noticeable). Please be careful and maybe use it on a part of your car that's not visible to make sure it doesn't peel the paint off or anything! Good luck and let me know if it works.

I would use a liquid compound product available at atuo stores. You can apply and rub by hand using a cloth or a buffing machine if you have one. If you don't have these products take the car to a auto reconditioner listed in the yellow pages. They could do it for you while you wait but they may charge a couple of bucks. Last resort is to take the car to an auto body shop and get their opinion.

Paul, I have had the same thing happen to my Classic truck. What did you end up doing to get rid of the stain?
