Exterior Mildew/Mold Problem
11-09-2005, 03:05 PM
For over a year now I have been parking under a tree with a mildew problem. The stuff is now all over my car. It doesn't wash off with anything I use and I am afraid to use anything stronger in fear it will take the paint off. I was thinking about just having it repainted and find somewhere else to park, but what I know of mold, once you have it, it is just about impossible to get rid of.
Has anyone ever heard of such a problem and can a good body shop remove all the mold and repaint the car without the mold reappearing?

mold no mildew possible if left in damp dark enclosed storage several months. more likely tree mist& or tree sap.removal is simple. blot area affected with laceur thinner, if you rub you will scratch the paint. blot only. then use a polish,ie #7 meguires Klasse all in one, menzerna final polish or your own pref.lac thinn will not harn your paint. finish with fav wax. hope this helps.
