removing primer

Alright peeps, hows it going? not too great for me, about 6 months ago someone tried to jack my car, they ruined the passenger door but didn't get in. So, I took it to this place to have it fixed, the messed up the paint job, brought it back- said, do it right- used the wrong color this time, brought it back again and its still messed up, but anyhow, this last time they left paint primer and the passenger side exterior door handle! I was pissed, but I know I'm not going to bring it back there, it was a horrible experience. Is there anyway I can get that primer off the handle, or how to repaint it or something? thanks guys-

my suggestion would be to use rubbing compound or clay bar wax.. That stuff takes paint and other crap off your car. Clay bar worked great on my work van it took a black mirror mark that was about 2" high and 3ft long on white van. The mirror left like a rubber/paint material behind that wouldn't wash off! U Could try like a wet sand with 3000 paper too but be care with sandpaper!!

you don't want to put wax on it cause that will just add a layer of protectant on it, will do nothing for removing the stuff. As for the clay bar you could try it, but it probably won't do much. My best advice is to go back and make them do it right, if not then take this matter up with your insurance company so they have to deal with the problem. As long as this matter was taken up with your insurance company, its partially their job to help you out, make em do their work. If you take off your door handle more things could go wrong. Good luck

Try the clay bar, it should work. If not try a solvent like Aftaline. You can buy it at homedepot.
