Hi catmoomoo,

Don't suppose there is any chance of a progress update...? 2 years after your last post, are the stains still off your car, or do you have to use aytoglym polish every couple of weeks? I have exactly the same problem and have tried a couple of things but the stains keep coming back.

Many thanks! :D

Big thanks PJGH :D

The Autoglym Super Resin Polish worked a treat, will work my way around the whole car now.

As long as you put a product, i.e., a wax or a sealant on top of the AG SRP, you should get a good couple of months protection; subject to vehicle use and driving conditions :D

Hi Mulder,

Thanks for pointing that out but it wasn't quite what I was trying to get at (I probably didn't quite make my question obvious though). I was trying to ask about whether the effect lasts at removing the existing stains permanently (not necessarily talking about whether it provides long term protection against future stains.) I completely appreciate i'd have to reapply every few months to keep protection up.

To explain what i'm trying to get at: its previously been recommended to me to use WD40 as a kind of polish product to remove the stains, and it works fantastically for a couple of weeks, taking about 5 minutes to apply and buff into the paintwork. Making the sun cream stains completely invisible. If catmoomoo had had the WD40 recommendation, then 3 days later (when he posted his reply) its very likely that he would have replied on these boards saying "thanks, worked fantastically". If the existing stains then reappeared 3 or 4 weeks later, he may or may not have posted a follow on status update asking for more advice.

I guess its academic, as I've just bought the autoglym super resin polish, so will get to work sometime this summer on the sun cream stains and see if it lasts! I'll post an update if it doesn't last, but thanks for the advice anyway! I just wish they made suncream that didn't permanently damage car paintwork! :-)

Suncreamstains - Your post brings back bad memories of the suncream marks all over the bonnet of my old Mazda :(

From what I understand, SRP may 'mask' the marks but it won't actually get rid of them completely. I bought some Meguiars Ultimate Compound, and had several goes at it using a lot of elbow grease each time. With every go I had, the marks seemed to go away whilst I did it, but then came back, albeit not as bad as the time before. I think by the time I sold the car they were just about gone but it really was hard work!

I learnt two lessons from this; the first of which you'll also have realised by now! - Don't apply, or in my case let your other half ](*,) apply suncream anywhere near the car, and if for some reason it does get on, deal with it ASAP, don't keep putting it off like I did or you will pay the price!
