Removing marker from painted pannels
I picked up a few painted parts from the autowreckers and they have written on them with some type of paint marker. Anyone know the best way to get it off without damaging the paint underneath it?Rhys - Canada

if they are metal body panels a clay bar might take it off without causing any damage.

Clay bar or metal polish will do. With of course a lot of elbow grease.

The paint markers are low tech and easy to remove. The trick is to avoid removing the paint.
I would use, one at a time, in sequence, until finding one that works:
1) denatured alcohol
2) xylene (or goof off, which is mostly xylene)
3) a good nonchlorinated brake cleaner
following label precautions
The brake cleaner is likely to damage the clearcoat so you want to expose the paint to it as little as possible, and you may have to touch up the clearcoat afterwards.Minneapolis area - 1997 K2500 regular cab long bed + 8.5' Western Unimount plow + modified transmission + 2nd battery + modified camper charge circuit + 1971 Cayo camper -and- 2004 4x4 Suburban 2500 8.1 + Maxbrake controller + 2nd battery + modified trailer charge circuit + Reese receiver, pulls 30' Airstream trailer
