PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
This is a urgent appeal for anyone to help with the following:
My Brother has a huge problem on the outside of his Caravan. It looks like a grimy?fatty? deposit on the paintwork. He has tried everything domestic to get this grime out of the paintwork but nothing has helped. Is there someone out there with the same problem who could maybe help? This dirt is on the back side of the caravan(opposite side to tent)and we only noticed it on our last camping trip. Don't know if someone had sprayed something on it or how it got there as it was not like that before. I hope all this makes sense to U clever campers. ONCE AGAIN PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hi Christa, What Dave said could help but just make sure that there's not to many Braso in the mix. I've been in the Valet buisiness for a couple of years and my dad used to walk around with bottle of braso, removing hard stains on the cars with it and I hated it, because i believe that it is harmfull to the clearcote on the paint. Now i'm in the chemical trade and supply mostly car wash and valet services. You must first determine what is on the van before applying annything on it, just to be carefull not to damage the paint surface. If you don't get any results, let me know and i will get in contact with you to help solve the problem.

good luck
Pierre

Hi Christa
Try using a good car polish and polish it out. Some years ago I had a similar problem with a stain on my car's paintwork and I made a paste by mixing brasso and baby powder.
A word of caution! Don't rub too much at a time, it will rub the paint off.
Regards Dave Coetzer

Hi Christa
I would suggest a good car polish, I have one of the older caravans (pre glass fibre) and I polish my van with Diamond gaurd at least once every two months. Rally is a good polish as well but you will need some elbow grease.
Hope this will help you.
Nico
