My car got egged last night or in the morning on 10/23/05. Ask hass, he'll understand. We live in Dearborn. 2 Car washes and there is still an egg stinch and some egg stains. I did a light search on the forum and found nothing like my situation. Anyway I really need ideas on how to get the stinch off and the remaining yolk stains without ruining my paint. Should I hand scrub with a sponge? Here are the pics.

should i try scrubbing first though? cuz i dont want to have to go through longing hours of work. its starting to get cold in michigan.
Here is EXACTLY What I would do....

#1-Find out who did it, beat them down. ;)

#2-Wash the car with a good quality car washing soap.

#3-ClayBar. (There is a tutorial in the DIY section for this)

#4-If there are still stains, an abrasive polish should be used, preferably with a buffer. If you don't have one, or feel comfortable using one, find a detailer in your area. Look for one that is mobile and works for themselves, they usually do the better jobs.

For more information check out http://www.detailcity.com. You can get some detailing information there, and if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, you should be able to find a detailer in your area on that forum.

Oh, and don't scrub too much, you'll end up adding marring and swirls and make the polishing harder.

At this point I recomend you take it to a pro, or have a pro come to you.

Follow Pat's instructions although I would probably take the car to one of the DIY and use the spray gun.

Put the setting on PRE-SOAK, spary the whole car, then power wash it off. Then wash the car by hand.

If you wash it by hand first, there's a chance that some of the egg shells might end up in your wash mitt or sponge and you don't want to scratch your car.

OOOO-Good points. I guess I assumed that most of the shells were off.

Looking at those pics.......I'm almost sure there will be shell stuck to the car.

I went through this with my GTP. It was the day of Halloween and some kids went bombing so my car became a casualty of war. :D

DOH!!! :eek: :eek: :D

Well, I'm at work so my attention to detail is not that great. I'm always looking over my shoulder to make sure no one is watching. :D

Now, let's say he drove it through a car wash and not actually hand washed....it might still be an issue.. :D

I don't have any egg shells on my car anymore. After I paid for the car wash, I told the guys that my car got egged, and they hooked me up by spraying, power washing, and clear coating my car. I did this twice at two different car washes. All that is left is like a smudged clear egg stain. No whites, no yellows. I have these on my driver window, door, hood, and driver side front fender. No paint was scratched, thank God. I'll post some pictures of the stains tomorrow.

Get a bucket, some soap, and a sponge/towel. A drive through wash will not do the job. With your paint being black I hope you started cleaning quick. The more that egg sits the more damage it does and the harder it is to get off.
Later!
