    She just found it today. She ran it through a car wash a couple times and then her and her roommate washed it by hand (not properly, but best they could do) and she says it still has oily spots on it and still smells like eggs. She hasn't driven since Sunday so the eggs could have been on there for as long as 5 days.

    Is there anthing at all that could help get rid of the spots and smell? I asked in the main forum and was told the paint was fucked no matter what. I'm hoping someone here might know some product or something that could help though.

    Thanks.

    Repaint. Nothing else will work. The egg shells actually cut into the paint.

    Werd to what Scottwax said... Our Ford XR6 got hit by egg.... all of it came off except for the "impact" point where the egg had chipped the paint off.

    You would be surprised. I've seen some pretty nasty scratches from egg shells.

    NO! Use car wash soap only. Not only does dish soap remove dirt and grime, but wax as well. In addition it is hard on your rubber seals.

    99 times out of 100, the egg shells cut the paint all the way to the metal. You can see how the egg hit by the way the paint is cut.

    but why not use dish soap this one time and then polish/rewax afterwards?

    might be worth it to try and get all the egg off, at least its cheaper than a new paint job

    Car wash soap will remove the egg. It doesn't matter anyway, it is the egg shells that do the damage, not the innards. Once that egg shatters on the paint, whatever damage it is going to do, happens then.
