How to get egg off?

Some *racial slur insert here* egged my truck and about 10 other cars down my buddies block today and it was pretty hot here today so the egg white is cooked onto my drivers side fender. I went to the car wash and power washed the hell outta it and it coming off. What do i do cuz i have a feeling my paint is already ruined

Step One
Get to the egg mess as soon as you discover it. Do not let egg sit on your car, even overnight

Step Two
Remove by hand the egg shell pieces that are not dried onto the car.

Step Three
Wipe up as much of the egg as you can with a soft towel, being careful not to scratch the paint with eggshell remnants.

Step Four
Soak a towel in a solution of half warm water and half white vinegar

Step Five
Place the saturated towel on the egg stain, letting it sit for 15-20 minutes

Step Six
Remove the wet towel, wipe away remnants and dry the area with a soft, dry towel.

Step Seven(which sucks)
Take your car to a body shop if the paint or clear coat is cracked, crinkled, scratched or bubbling up. You may need to have to have the car spot-painted or completely repainted.

You should be able to be more agressive with the clean up of the plastic area...

Good luck, and take some pics b4 and after!

This is why my driveway has motion activated lights, an infrared security camera, and audio trigger surveillance. Everyone who steps on my property, much less just drive's by, is being recorded in high resolution, day or night!

I feel your pain...
I got hit a couple of years ago (when my paint still looked really nice).
Cops were called & I found out that several others in the neighborhood had been hit the same night as I got it.
The cop said "well I don't see any shells here.... but it's definitely egg, just like the people up the street".
I told him it might have been a drive-by & that he should be on the lookout (in the next few days) for a car that smells like rotten eggs.
I was [email protected] off, but we had a good laugh.
It was spring time & the egg was still mostly in liquid form, so I was able to wash it off with my regular automotive wash (insert name of your favorite car wash product here).
Afterwards, it didn't look any worse than a "bird crap" spot.

Baked-on egg might be a different story. You might get it off with a buffing compound or scratch remover. Afterwards, you could try some of that "as seen on TV" color match car wax to help hide the area.
