How to remove rubber/paint from our bumper from another car. Help please!
That should come off pretty well with a mild cutting polish on a clean microfibre cloth.
Just go steady on the edges where the bumper changes shape) as the clear coat is thinner on those areas.
Although doing it by hand you won’t really need to worry about that.
Take it slowly and do a small area at a time.Posted 4 years ago
My poor better half got a new car on Saturday. Yesterday she phoned me that someone had reversed into her and driven off. Checked the damage today and it seems to be just rubber and some navy blue paint from the other car.
What’s the best way to remove it? We obviously don’t want to damage our paintwork. It is a white vw by the way. Any help would be much appreciated.
Going to try and resolve it today.Posted 4 years agotronMember
The best way to get that off is to use a clay bar, not a polish. A clay bar will take all of the transferred paint off very easily without abrading your paint. You’ll be left with some marks from the accident that need buffing up, but you shouldn’t need to be using anything as aggressive as G3.Posted 4 years ago

Sorry but clay bar isn’t the right thing to use for that. It *might* remove some of it, but I would not use clay for transfer as heavy as that, its far more likely to cause a problem than it is to solve one in that scenario.
And I’m not sure what you mean that G3 is too aggressive. G3 is a range, not a product, so if you pick the right product from the range then it will be spot on.
I would use G3 ultra on the flat areas and G3 fine on the edges, and a machine polish of G3 finish over the lot to remove any fine marks when all the colour/transfer had been removed.
If you really want to cheat, brake cleaner would remove it. But it’s a “cheat” and if you are unlucky, It can make the too coat to milky, which would then require machine polishing anyway. So it’s best to do it right first time in my view.Posted 4 years ago
Just looked on Halfords website at G3 (I buy direct from Farecla so it’s a different range from the retail stuff)
They only have one grade in the G3 range and I’ve no idea how that compares to the Professional range in terms of cutting.
So I would use Megs ScratchX if I was buying from Halfords. It’s not as good as using a range of compounds, but will do the job, just a bit slower.Posted 4 years ago
