-   -   Removing Tire Marks from Trailer (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=84765)

On our last trip I ran over a huge piece of tire on the freeway. Luckily, it didn't do any damage to the boat or trailer, but it left a four-foot skid mark down the side of my nice, white trailer. Any ideas for getting it off?

David, <BR> <BR>Wear some gloves and use break fluid. I would check a small area underneath to make sure there won't be any issues with the paint. <BR> <BR>I found out by accident that break fluid can clean almost anything on my white trailer, including tire marks.

Try Rubbing Compound I think brake fluid will take the paint off

Yes, I would think that brake fluid would damage the paint. You might try acetone; available at hardware or paint stores. It removes a lot of stuff harmlessly. I would still test it first though as the labels always say....

Don't get teh Acetone near any plastic parts, like light fixtures, it'll eat the plastic pretty badly.

Sounds funny but use a deck shoe or K-swiss style white sole shoe and scuff it along the mark. Should take the black right off. Works on the floor anyway. <BR> <BR>Eric

Brake fluid will not remove the paint (unless you just painted the thing 10 minutes ago).

The only place my old trailer was rusted was where the the brake fluid spilled out so I'd be a little leary of using it.
