My E30 had to spent some time under a car cover recently but due to water entering the boot via the aerial, I had to put a second none breathable cover over the back of the car. Unfortunately, this second cover looks to have damaged the paint on the boot lid, as I can only describe what looks to be ingrained marks with the paint which seem reluctant to be removed either by using Metallic T-cut or using a Meguiars clay bar and a polish afterwards. The question is, is there way to remove these marks or is it just case or having to have the boot lid repainted?

hi Phil

Would you be able to take some photos & post them on here please, i may be able to help you further with this. I was a valeter for main dealers for over 20 years before going on my own.

Or if you prefer you can email them to me.

regards
Rich

Hi Rich,
I'll get some photos taken over the weekend and I'll see how successfully I am in uploading them here, failing that I'll email them to you if you let me have your email?
 
Thanks
