The best way is to machine polish it with g3 cutting compound, it will be better than new another way is to use a hot air gun but be careful because to much heat will ruin it

How to make your car shine like new again.

Todays car uses a polyurehtane type finishes. Some would have that shiny clear coat on top of the flat color or mixed with color already. Over the years sun would dull away that shiny clear coating making the car look faded out and some sever cases the clear coat is already gone. On most cases an electric buffer and some polishing compound is all that is need to restore the car like new. On severe cases a fine sand paper of 1000 grit or more is needed to sand away the roughness then followed by buffing. If the clear coat is gone completely, you can spray only the bad area with fresh clear coat then buffed after wtih polishing compound after drying completely. Unless you have the knack for spray painting you should not try it. Getting a good result require skills and practice. Besides I do not really recommend spray cans since there are no adjustment you can do except in the way you spray the paint. If you decide to paint it anyways the rule of thumb is do not disturb any part that do not need to be painted and always cover surrounding area with a newspaper using masking tape. Do not rush on the job, and take your time. The technic in spray painting is get the hands moving before you press the spray button, and keep the hand moving as you release it. The distance from the surface should be 6 to 8 inches. Adjust travel speed to get the best result. Spray in layered patern. You should adjust the speed of travel just enough to cover the surface completely without mist but not to much since this will result in "orange peel" appearance or worst a run down and keep a steady pace.. Use a cardboard to practice first. Remember do not disturb any part that can be buffed out. Most faded out surface can be sanded and buffed smooth. If you take your time and do a good job you will be happy to see the fruits of your labor everytime you go outside and see your car. Good luck!

Someone spraypainted my car how do I remove it?

Depends on the paint.
Most of the time you can use rubbing or polishing compound to "rub" the spray paint off.
As for the sugar, if you have not cranked the engine yet, or turned on the key, you may be able to take the gas tank off and clean it out without having to flush the fuel lines.

How do I fix paint chips on the hood?

I suggest you keep touching in the spots and building up the level over time until it is slightly proud of the surrounding paintwork. When fully hardened the surface of the spot should be flatted with a small block. I use the end of a short piece of 3/8 or 1/2 inch wooden dowel with a circle of fine abrasive paper glued to it. I sand wet and begin with 600 grit and finish with 1000 or 1200 grit. Once the area is flush it can then be polished with a polishing compound such as farecla and finished with T-cut.
A coat or two of lacquer can be applied or a few coats of hard wax polish.

2004 blue endeavor paint problem

This is a common problem with base coat clear coat paint, you may want to take it to the dealer and see if they will do something about it. GM and ford both had a problem with the clear coat fading and actually peeling away. If enough people complain they may do something about it. It has to basically be sanded down and repainted and clear coated again. The only sure way to keep this from happening is using a car cover when it’s in the sun. And blue is one of the worst I have seen for failure. But again it’s worth a shot to go to the dealer and see if there is a recall on the paint. The squeaky wheel gets greased

Hyundai 2008 Azera Limited

There have been a lot of complaints lately of newer Hyundais having a "soft" clear coat. Hyundai has not recalled any of these vehicles yet, but I would strongly recommend taking it to the dealer and try to get it fixed under warranty. You have a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty specifically for the paint, unfortunately though, it is up to the dealer's discretion as to whether or not it is a "significant" problem. Never hurts to try though.
