    I had used magnetic signs for the 1st time and on my Burgandy truck it is getting discolored from the magnets. Its not faded it's more like gaswas spilled on the paint. Is there something that will take it off or who do i take it to to see what to do?

    You suppose to take them off and wash behind them or that's what will happen.

    A quality rubbing compound should do it.

    you could try to buff it out or use fine cut or 3M Imperial rubbing compound on a rag. 3M is about the best out there any auto parts store should have it for around $20 post a picture of what it is doing
