Apparently, somewhere between Sabraton and my house, the DOT felt it neccesary to repaint the road and not put up any signs or anything else. I honestly don't remember there even being brighter lines anywhere, but I went to the bank and the DMV and when I got to the DMV and got out of the car. I found yellow paint all over the side, on the wheels, in the fenders.. litterally I think I hyperventalated.

I drove home, sprayed all the paint with graffiti remover from lowes and it softened it up enough that it would come off without scrubbing/scratching the car. It took about 3 hours to get off the car, but its scratch free and I am glad. Clean up the wheels also, thank god they were polished with a fresh coat of mothers on them so they had some protectant. I advise keeping your stuff waxed and polished so if something like this happens to you it does not bond to your vehicle.

The only down side to this, is I can't get it out of the tread.. anyone got any ideas? I tried, but its caked in there and wont release.

I contacted the DOH, which referred me to their contractor that paints for them.
Then They asked me to send em pics, and they would see what they can do.

as far as the tires use whesley's bleach white for white lettered tires and a wire brush... that's what we use and it does pretty good to take that stuff off the rubber

Yea. Glad to see that it turned out good. That sucks. I think I would have driven my car through the DOH office if it were me!

i like the new flame addition to the car- lol...

glad you got it off the car.... the stuff on the tire will eventually disappear over time from wear but also have the chance of throwing stuff back on the car.... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

glad you got it off. I use to have this sweet pressure washer that had a water heater built in. a friend's truck did the same thing you did and I just cranked up the heat and all the paint came off without any chemicals. so maybe try some hot water with that bleach that aaron mentioned? maybe some paint thinner?

We use just a regular buffer and some compound that usually does the trick.
