    Best advice is to try and clean off paint as soon as possible. Ideally before the spray paint is fully dry. Solvents work best while its still a bit soft.

    Question...if this car was really vandalized why wouldn't they have just have spray painted the interior so it couldnt be cleaned? Instead of only using dirt? Second thing to point out...a insurance company most likely would never have totaled out this car if a simple detailer could have restored it. Especially if the owner didnt know about the sugar in tank. It does happen but not usually. I could be the videos but seems like this whole situation has been set up by ebay motors

    Professionals remove quick and easy with a soft white cloth and just a little acetone. It will not remove the paint from the car. spray the car with water immediately after.

    Paint takes a lot of prep and care to stick well. A spray can job on your car will come off easily. The steps in this video are avoid microscratches in the clear coat, as if it were a nice new car. However this is a cheap car with a salvage title. You can just take some acetone on a rag or a magic eraser and wipe if off in under 5 minutes. The microsratches you won't be able to see unless the light hits it at the right angle, and if you weren't careful drying the car after washing before it's probably already covered with them anyways.

    I don't quite understand the whole picture. the seller supposedly said he has been trying to fix the car but the paint didnt come off so he sells it with a loss. But as far as i can see the paint is coming off with water hose which shouldnt happen if the seller even triedto clean it and also it's covered in dust and mud too so he didnt even give it a regular wash. Sound like a set-up to me? This wasn't sold by a regular old Joe now was it.

    I am an ocd car cleaner, so I love Chrisfix, I already know a lot of what he shows in his videos but I have also learned a lot as well, my dad was a mechanic and bought cars restored them and sold them for a profit back in the 70's, he did mechanical work some body work and even taught himself how to upholster so he could make seats, there is a satisfaction that comes from not only cleaning but restoring a car or anything for that matter to like new.
