    Vandalism

    So my car got vandalized last night. Someone broke a flu recent light bulb over my car. Luckily it smashed against the side, and most of the glass was not spread over the hood of my car. However there are plenty of tiny shards. What’s the best way to get them off my car without destroying the paint?

    The loosers didn't even have the balls to break a window and make my insurance pay for this

    It doesn't seem wise to blow very sharp things across my car. Seems like it would scratch the paint as it slides off my hood.

    then i would say water
    turn the hose on just enough to flow nicely
    like a wetsand speed
    and slowely rinse your car
    carefully

    Use a vacuum cleaner and lift it of the hood

    duct tape...

    duh!!

    just playing but gental tape should do the trick just heat it up a tad and it should get most of it off. just be careful and not use a strong glue...

    I called my mechanic today and asked him. He reccomended using water. I did, It worked perfectly. Only 2 bad scratches, where the bulb hit the door of the car. A little touch up paint and it should be fine.
