View Full Version : Concrete specks
06-29-2010, 08:42 PM
Any one know a good way to get concrete off a paint job without having to sand it and repaint it. Seems that in my trucks last life it was used to haul a couple shovels full of conrete in the bed and some got specked on the tailgate, let alone that the bed liner looks like its painted white in the one corner but not too worred about that. Just fishing for ideas.

Use muriatic acid, it'll take concrete right off. We've used it to take concrete off many of our work rigs.
Be sure to wear gloves and work in a well ventilated area, it's fairly caustic. I would not leave it on your paint for too long, just long enough to remove the concrete. After, flush with a healthy dose of water and give your rig a good wash and wax. GL

Before using to harsh a chemical, try using a Mr.Clean Magic Eraser. I know...crazy but they are magic.

Thanks for the ideas. The concrete truck drivers I am around at work said they got some cleaner they use that doesn't hurt the paint so going to give that a try.

Not sure the magic eraser will work, but i do know muratic acid will.
Im assuming the truck in question is in your avatar....is it lowered?

Not lowered yet. Might drop the rear 2" soon. Need to haul the kid around so going to leave it up till he gets bigger and its easier to get him in and out. I'm 6'-8" and bending down into a lowered truck with a 22 pound 6 month old doesn't seem all that cool right now. hahaha.
