Removing plastic from paintwork


Coming out of the office on Friday the barrier was up and as I drove through it came down and wacked the top of the car. Fortunately most of the impact was on one of the roof rails. The damage to the paintwork polished off without a problem but the white plastic on the barrier has left a white mark on the roof rail which is sprayed matt black. I've tried turps and white spirit neither of which has touched it

Any suggestions gratefully received!

I'd be tempted to try T Cut or Brasso, only worry would be this might discolour matt black you could do with something slightly abrasive but with no colour. Might sound completely nuts but sugar soap might be worth a try.

I'd certainly be trying a 14lb sledge hammer on that friggin barrier.

Sorry hondo - I forgot to mention I'd tried some T-Cut. Looked like it was bringing off the paint but not the plastic?!? I'll try some sugar soap though...
