I removed about 5 inches of this red/white pin stripe vynl thing on the front left fender of my 96 camry le.... and underneath the vynl was the original paint, and this car has never been taken care of on the paint exterior till about 6 months ago when i took a turtle wax polishing compound to it by hand.

what do i need to make the paint under it and the rest of the paint match even up with each other?

take it to a detail shop and have it polished and buffed. It'll run you anywhere from 50 up but it's worth it

Never mind the bad paint touch up (my dad doesnt know how to do anything :(....)



The pic may not show it, but theres adhesive and what not, it looks gay up close.... isnt there some stuff called "goo gone" or something that will take that off?

when i go buy some in a little while, i'm also gonna pick up a megiuiars claying kit from the store, give that a try.

Try using some good ol' cheap mineral spirits on the glue (Obviously DO NOT use any paint thinner, or laquer thinner!!!), clay bar the car and wax it......
