    T cut or if its pretty thick a proper cutting compound and an electric mop will remove it. Just be careful if its on the morohome bit instead of the van bit as the paint on the motorhome bit will be very very thin :Sad:

    If all else fails and its really thick ring the insurance company :Eeek:

    Paintwork

    Hi,
    Sorry to hear about your problem. You can get special "Graffitti Removers" but I think they might be too aggresive for MH paintwork. Might be worth asking a local coachworks for advice. If they've done half the street the local coachworks should be quite good at removing it!

    This is one reason that I keep a good layer of polish with a finishing coat as nothing will stick to it very well. To get anything to stick you have to use meths or other to remove it. If you have used one of these polishes then it should come off with T - cut.

    Disclaimer! :BigGrin:

    Get some cheap thinners/gunwash from a local paint store (car type) and try a SMALL area with some clean rag or paper towel, wiping off straight away. If it softens the original paint at all, STOP!

    If you use a machine polisher chances are you will wear through the original paint around the graffiti quicker than removing it. Even if this does not happen and the graffiti comes off it may leave a `hologram` trace of the graffiti which could be seen when looking across the affected area.

    Get it done as soon as before it gets baked on by the sun. Aerosol type paints tend to be soft and not too hard to remove. You may try a drop of petrol as this tends to soften these types of paint.

    If you cann get to it quick enough ordinary car polish with lots of elbow grease will remove it

    Hanging is too good for them. Some people say that WD40 will remove paint like this.
