not yblock but I bought a work car a2004 ford focus. The young guy that had it didnt like the purple factory paint job so he got some blue paint and just painted over the factory paint job.he never sanded anything and never put on more than one coat. My question is how can i remove this terrible paint job without damaging the factory paint? There is paint coming off around the door handles and windows and the old paint is shiny and looks great.i got some of it off with a pressure washer but most of it stayed on. Anybody have any suggestions?

Try rubbing compound paste, not the liquid form. I hope you got a good deal.

Don't lose any sleep over it. I'm retired, restoring my inherited 55 T-bird. On one hand, I do care what it looks like, and not likely to cut corners. But it's taking too long, costs too much, and at my age (66), I don't seek/want attention. Cars, and other things, can become an unhealthy obsession. There are more important things to lose sleep over. Better to consider it just a means of transportation. What's most important with any car/truck is that it is safe, reliable, and doesn't cost a fortune to keep.

Let me know if the rubbing compound (and elbow grease) works. Your mother will be pleasantly surprised if you can bring the original paint back to life.
