pole paint on side of 2012 Wildcat

Okay so my sweet husband got too close to one of those parking lot poles in Walmart,now there's a big streak of yellow paint on the side of our camper. Anyone know how to get it off? We tried goof off in the lower part to try and get a sticker off and he used his fingernail and it scraped it to bare metal.

Did something like that with my truck. Some rubbing compound and allot of elbow grease got the unwanted paint removed. A good wax job after that and now it's just a memory. If you don't want to work that hard a auto body shop might be of some help

Try some paint thinner..should take right off. Acetone may do the trick as well.

Our friend had some paint on her car and we tried Goo Gone on the paint and it came off.

What you want avoid at this stage is anything abrasive. Is it on the met or fiberglass gelcoat? You might give claybar a shot if the acetone/paint thinner doesn't wipe it right off. Claybar may even erase some of the deep looking scratches.

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work wonders. I would try one before anything else.

I would not use rubbing compound. A liquid (Goof Off, Goo Gone, paint thinner, acetone) will do a much easier job. Did it on my trailer with a shop towel and it came off fairly easily.
