Leaning on dirty car

i was at a car meet, and my friend and i just chilled by our cars for about 10 minutes. i decided to lean on my friend's RSX-S which was covered in dirt and then he flipped out on me.

he told me not to lean on the dirt because it would rub it in and mess up the paint (or something like that).

somebody explain this to me ... because of my knowledge, i thought car paint is supposed to endure rain, snow, and of course dirt enough to be inpenatrable.

it could hurt it, but not very much. by leaning on the car, even if you hold still, you will lightly rub the dirt in. That will cause swirls and tiny scratches. I wouldnt let someone lean on my car period, but what he is worried about is probably the fact that you could leave swirls that are easily visible in sunlight especially if its a dark color.

Lening on a clean car could easily leave scratches let alone a dirty one. Never lean on a car. And tell your frind to buy some car wash!

he exagerates.

Anyways, he probably spent a large portion of his life saving on that car so you should understand.

leaning on the car paint/body COULD cause harm, but not noticeable to the human eye. if it is dirty (say bird ****, heavy dirt speck, etc). by leaning on it, you would most likely be moving a little bit which is grinding against the paint causing the clear coat to tear off eventually and if its deep/thick object, it could leave a scratch on the paint. but again, its not noticeable.

i hate when people do that as well. they just have no respect for another mans property. i know most car owners dont care, but there are couple people who are detail freaks and are caution on every speck.

when you lean on a dirty car it will act like fine grit sand paper and will actualy sand the clear. if the dirt is thick enough it could dig deep scratches and not be able to be removed

Just what they all said, it can leave fine scratches int he clearcoat. DO NOT LEAN ON ANYBODYS CAR EVER!!!! You are liable to get your *** beat. My girl has gotten good with it. I do not let her touch my car or set anything on it. She used to get pissed, but finally accepts it. My friends 98 civic got fudged a week or two ago. His friends brother set something on his roof, and as my friend noticed and said move it, it was too late. He has about 10 LARGE scratches on his roof. I hate stupid people with no respect for cars. Nobody should touch anybodys car but their own.

I remember working at this one place, and when I would come out on break, there would be 2 people sitting on my car and like 4 or 5 around it. I would walk out at them, stare at them, set my alarm to go off, etc, etc, and they didnt learn. I hate them, and they need to rot in hell for it. They were probably trying to say its their car or some ****. but all those people need to die!

because of the dirt on the car, and also depending on how much dirt is on the car, It can leave some major scratches.
