    hey all,
    I had some numpty drove into my front passenger side wing, I got the repairs done from a pro garage... looks great (new wing and sprayed). The repairs were done last Friday (last week in July). I was about to wash my car today and noticed on the back bumper (lower bumper) and the plastic cover including exhaust has what looks like Primer overspray... I guess I never noticed it before due to bad weather... Today sun was out and it caught my eye... I plan to go back to garage, but was wondering is there any way of removing this easily? i.e. clay bar? Or some compound?



    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated - cheers chaps.

    Hi mate, no bumper is not painted, the front wing was painted - i'm gussing they sprayed the wing behind the car before fitting it?
