Default Punks messed my car up

It was late saturday night, and I was coming home from work, I got in at 4am, and left the car out in the parking lot to my aptm, when I woke up suday afternoon there was broken egg all over my car, some punks dirtied up half of my car with eggs. No big deal right, wrong, the egg was hardened on there, and hot water with some soap couldn't get it off, nor could a jet spray from the car wash, does anyone know what solution I can use to get this $%#ing egg off my car.

If your car has been the target of some neighborhood pranksters, act quickly to wash it off. It takes about two hours for dried egg to damage the finish of a car.


Steps:
1. Get to the egg mess as soon as you discover it. Do not let egg sit on your car, even overnight.

2. Remove by hand the egg shell pieces that are not dried onto the car.

3. Wipe up as much of the egg as you can with a soft towel, being careful not to scratch the paint with eggshell remnants.

4. Soak a towel in a solution of half warm water and half white vinegar.

5. Place the saturated towel on the egg stain, letting it sit for 15-20 minutes.

6. Remove the wet towel, wipe away remnants and dry the area with a soft, dry towel.

7. Take your car to a body shop if the paint or clear coat is cracked, crinkled, scratched or bubbling up. You may need to have to have the car spot-painted or completely repainted.


Overall Tips:
Contact your insurance company to see if "egging" is covered under your policy. If damage costs come to more than your deductible, insurance may pay for it.

Keeping your car waxed and the finish protected may help avoid damage from eggs.


Overall Warnings:
The longer the egg sits on your car, the more damage will be done, especially if egg is allowed to "bake" on in the sun.

well unfrotunatly I was unable to come to the aid of my car in time, the egg was stuck on there like you woulnl;t believe. I got the egg off, but the paint on my car looks considerably faded and a bit scratched. I mandaged to get a wax and polish in, and now my drivers side door and pass door stand out due to the faded paint. Thank for the input, and unfortunatly I don['t have a digital, so pics cannot be provided.

Tomato juice or sauce and bologna can wreck havoc on paint too!
