Vandalism tips for paint.

Last Friday night, 25 cars spray painted in the vicinity. Unfortunatly one was mine. Found out a few things. If your car is waxed, paint doesn't stick well. Easy-off oven cleaner removes paint and doesn't harm finish. Who would have thunk it. I didn't think it was true, but got it from two independant sources, and it worked great. I never let the oven cleaner set for more than three minutes. Used Goo-gone on the tailights and headlight covers using two rag system. On and off quick. No blemishes left. When all was cleaned up, gave it a good wax, and I can't tell there was ever a problem. Now it's time to go hunting.

From close in to 700 yards, I am pretty well set. Got anything for really long shots?
