I left a bra on my car last year a little too long. I now notice that where the bra was there is a difference in color. Is this correctable. Has anyone removed something like this. If so what products have they used?

I may be wrong and you may be able to fix it, but I would probably say to just repaint it.... or get a CF hood...:D
But if you left it on for this long, why do you want to take it off now??? The cheapest fix is to just leave it on....

Bras should not be left on cars for any length of period. You should put it on before a long highway trip and take it off once you arrive. You will get paint fading and it promotes rust and scratches if left on for any length of time.

You can try stripping the wax and polishing the car and then re-waxing(as it might just be oxidation of the paint). Else you might have to take it to a professional to get it buffed out. Depending on how different the colours are the harder it will be to restore.

What colour is the car?

Red is the colour that oxidizes the quickest. It is not real different in colour it will likely come back with just a normal wax cycle(strip, polich, wax). You will likely see this when you was the car next as the buffing cloth will have what appears to be read paint on it.

If not take it to a pro and have it buffed.

She left one in my car too!!! hahah sorry j/k I'm being a jerk, but I'm just as bored as you :D



Anyhow, My wife left the bra on her black M3 for about a year, and ended having to get the hood repainted and if you look close you can see the hood and fenders don't match, because the car is faded and the hood is brand new, but it's better than the horizontal line she had on the hood, it looked like hell.

I had the same problem. I wash and wax fixed it. Now, I take my car's bra off whenever I'm expecting rain or washing the car. It's never on for more than a week at a time.
