R45 2001 in Copperleaf Red - hydraulic fluid sprayed on front

Hi All

Been trying the clean this off before and got nowhere! Looks like maybe a lorry leaked something that sprayed on to the front of the car. You can see the droplets dried on the paint and even the lights. Tried Tcut, silicone polish, white spirit but nothing removes the stains.
Can anyone suggest anything?
I'll put something pictures up but need to get good light and right angle to see them.

Neil :-)

Tried battery acid? Or human ****e both are good removers in the right situation
I think its eaten the paint so nothing will polish it out sorry dude.

Looks like blisters in the clear coat to me, but difficult to tell from a photo.

It could be the clear coat although I can't remember if the dealer did a diamond brite session on the car prior to delivery and so whatever was sprayed on the car may have attacked that.

Well I've got it off, but not in a nice way! So a bit of extra waxing to do today as the top lacquer coat took a bit of scouring to remove the spots from the front of the bonnet and bumper. :-)
