I have a few staines on the paintwork of one of the cars, its original paint which has lovely patina and I have no intention of respraying it.
The staines are those that look sort of oily looking in colour that generally run down from the chromework.

Has anyone any tips on removing them without damaging the paintwork?

Autosol can remove rusty streak & oily-looking stains like you describe from paintwork I've found, the downside is that it'll polish up the paintwork perhaps to a greater shine than that which is around it, so you may end up polishing the lot to get it looking right again.

Morning,

I agreed with RJ!

I'd try Farecla g10 extra fine with a super soft cloth on a small area no one will see if possible!? (make sure it's washed and clean of dust/grit of course first so you don't polish in scratches!).
But as RJ says I think you'll have to gently polish the whole car/panel to blend in any polish patches.

Hope it helps a little.

Good luck and all the best.

Chris
