OSPHO on my new truck

So I had a painter re-painting my carport and, before telling me, started brushing on ospho while my truck was in one of the stalls. And yes, he dripped ospho on the front passenger fender and a little on the hood. I didn't find out until today when I washed it. Does anyone know what kind of damage it is going to do and how the heck I can get it off my clear coat? Thanks

Take it to a body shop and get an estimate for damages and removal and give the bill to the painter.

Don't do anything to it or you run the risk of not being able to recoup any money to cover repairs should you cause anymore damage to it.

Search ospho, then look for "material safety data sheet" more than likely a phone number for company info on product? Numbers I got Manufacturer name= The Skybryte company, and they in Cleaveland, Ohio. And the number for "other information" is 216-771-1590 (Skyco) And it reads its an acid base metal treatment that seems to work pretty good, Hopefully no damage to you paint, and hope its easy cure

I emailed the ospho company and in the reply they sent me, the guy said that since it has phosphoric acid in it, it HAS eaten threw the clear coat. Awesome.

Well, hopefully now you can get it repaired properly, I would be so upset not having my truck to drive. I been flipping out just account of bird droppings. I do hope there is a good shop there that does paint well and you get it back quick.

Well it's gonna take a week or so to re-coat it. That being said, I'm gonna have to drive it as is for now. I'm heading back south in the morning and donor have time to get it fixed now. I'm going to have to do some research and find a good body/paint shop in south Texas, San Antonio or Corpus area, so I can get it done. Here's a few pics of the damage.

I'm no expert in this, but I wouldn't think phosphoric acid would "eat" clearcoat...

Are you sure you've got as big a problem as you think? It's a Very mild acid and modern paint coatings are pretty resilient to that kind of stuff. A light buff could possibly be all it's gonna take (I agree though, let a paint shop do it so it can't be said You did anything wrong). What your pictures show is the residue I would expect phosphoric acid to leave as it dried, I'm just not sure it's "into" the topcoat though.
