    ...to get cement flecks off the car?

    Somehow I have about 30/40 drops of hardened cement on the side of the car. Looks like some c**t has flicked a brush at the car as they've gone past, cant see how it could be accidental....the drops have hardened and I was thinking of just wetting them and wiping off (not so they scratch the lacquer but from the side so they are almost lifted off).

    Any detailers out there got any magic ways of removing this without damaging the paint?

    Ouch. I know wonder wheels would remove them as it is hydrochloric acid in dilute form which is essentially masonry/brickwork wash, but using it on paintwork would be something I cannot recommend/advise on. Should be safe as wheels are painted ?

    Bad news is cement is corrosive so probably no matter what your paintwork will messed up It would have eaten into the laquer so you would have to remove it and then hopefully it will polish out-either that or it will have to be resprayed I feel for you,Mate I would be gutted
