    IMG_0565.jpeg IMG_0566.jpeg I was the victim of South Florida roads. Apparently drove through a patch of wet red paint. Any ideas how to remove this? Can a good bodyshop remove it or do I need to repaint? Thanks!

    a ton of elbow grease will get it cleaned up. I’d recommend finding a detail shop, if you don’t want to or feel confident handling it.
