I had a minor mishap a week ago with my 2008 9-5 wagon. I was coming home one evening and pulling into the garage while it was raining. I did not notice that a can of spray paint had fallen off a shelf in the garage and rolled out on to the floor....until the front passenger wheel rolled over it and I heard a hissing noise.
Thinking I might have a coolant hose leak or something, I stopped, got out and saw the can (now just behind the front wheel) creating a pool of paint on the floor as most of the compressed propellant had already escaped.
I quickly got the can of the garage and checked the 9-5. Most of the initial shot from the can apparently hit the underside of the car and the tire, but a few spatters came up on the front quarter panel behind the wheel well spreading back toward the front passenger door.
While this was less worse than I feared at the time, I am now trying to decide the best way to remove these splatters. What is my best bet? Start with a clay bar and go to polishing compound if the clay bar does not work?
