Didn't you notice the spot yesterday when you bought the car. I would take it back to the seller and see if you can get some money back to paint the hood.

It was just a small used car lot i got it from...i did noticed it but the lady there couldnt tell me what it was she didnt know. So im just needing ideas on ways i could clean it off myself


Jessica, if that is the case, then you accepted the car in that condition and have no recourse with the dealer. I would follow the recommendations of Tom, they make sense. Good luck.
