    Pecan juice stains on paint

    This isn't my car, but my dad has a white Prius and while it was parked in his driveway, pecan pieces fell on the roof and left brownish stains on the finish. I've tried using some of my 3M stuff to remove them, but it does nothing. It looks like it's stained the paint as I don't feel any noticeable etching. Does anyone have any other ideas? Use my orbital buffer or wet sand it? Or is the only fix involve repainting the roof?

    Try Carb cleaner my son dumped hot pink nail Polish on my white carpet upstairs in my house and it took it out without bleaching or hurting the carpet I wouldn't think it would hurt paint, try it out in a area that's not noticeable first

    I've used rubbing alcohol to remove tough sap. But I immediately washed, re compounded, re sealed it after.

    Well, I've tried a clay bar on it too, but it's not really doing much. Maybe I should get a slightly more abrasive rubbing compound. I'm not sure I wanna put carb cleaner on the finish.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    is it single stage or clear coated? white toyota's are typically single stage unless it's metallic....

    The paint is the same mildly metallic pearlish white that Lexus uses. It's not the straight white.

    I've thought about giving that a try too. My clay bar lightened the stains some, but they're still on it.
