    Angry Car got vandalized!
    July 22nd night - Camry got vandalized by some kids or somebody while it was parked in the driveway. It was spray painted but luckily I just waxed my car a few weeks ago, so the paint did not really stick on it. My trunk and rear mirror was sprayed with black paint. My sister's 2004 Nissan was hit with 2 colors and it took a longer time to get the spray paint off (no wax).

    Some garage doors were spray painted with the words "B1*ch", "F**k" and "S**k" in about 4ft * 7ft diamensions. All in all, about 1 dozen cars/trucks were hit at random and about 10 houses were spray painted. Police came knocking on my door at 6.45am telling me about it. There were like 3-4 cop cars on my street and they were taking statements.

    I have waxed tonight my car before dark and left the wax on. So if they hit again, at least they will be spray painting on the wax

    Here are some pics of their work.

    Got any after pictures?

    Umm the spot on the tail light lens might be more difficult. If you are having problems try some solvent and be careful not to get it on the paint. It will remove wax at best and paint at worst.

    Some stores sell a packaged solvent like graffiti remover or something like that.

    It is a good strength but not too strong.

    Most automtive paint is acrylic. Do not use acrylic laquer thinner on the paint!

    Try the graffiti remover. Or some of your neighbors may have bought some already.

    Have a graffiti removing party! Finish one car, enjoy a beverage, finish another car.....

    Does this happen a lot, in the area you live?

    My colleague's car was frequently targeted - he lived in a bad area in Queens, ny. His car stereo got stolen twice, windows broken then he decided to move to another state.
