Thanks for the info, but its definitely not cement.

I went ahead and filed a claim with VDOT this afternoon. I will still be trying to get in touch with the contractor tomorrow. Unfortunately it looks like ill be stuck in a long process with either of them.

Update

I went ahead and filed a claim with the VA DOT on Sunday just to get the ball rolling incase the company won't do anything. The lady on the phone warned me its a very long process. I will receive a kit in the mail within 10-14 days in which i will have to fill out a ton of paperwork, and also include pictures and repair quotes for them.
Hopefully i wont have to wait for that. I got ahold of the right contracting company today who is doing the paving work. The guy on the phone was very understanding and is in contact with the VP of the company to see what they can do for me. He said he's going to TRY and get back to me today since they are closed Thursday and Friday for the holiday. Otherwise i wont hear anything new until Monday. Fingers crossed this company steps up and takes care of my poor baby.

Well thats slightly good news! Couldve been worse. At least the company is trying to be understanding.

Tried it. No luck.

Ive also since talked to a buddy of mine who runs a detailing business. He said hes seen this stuff before, and unfortunately it doesnt come off. Only option is to sand and repaint. Im still interested to see what it actually is. Ill make sure to ask the paving company when i hear back.

Im really not thrilled about having half my car repainted. What happens if they dont match the paint well?? Then im really F'd. What a nightmare this is.

Your paint should match its a factory color right? Its pretty new i don't think it could have faded that much in that short of time

Haven't talked to my insurance company yet, just because I'd get stuck with the $500 deductible. Im gonna wait until I hear back from the paving company, and see what they say. Then I'll call my insurance company just to figure out my options with them if need be. If i have too, as a last resort, I'll have the insurance pay for it. But im gonna fight with the company and DOT before i get stuck with the bill.

Thats what im hoping. Im always nervous about having stuff repainted though. I did find a really good body shop, who does alot of work on high end cars like Ferraris and Lambos so i feel i can trust them with my Mustang haha. I have an appointment with them next Tuesday the 9th to get an estimate.

Another Update

Guy just called me back. He is having me take my car to a detailing company where they have a corporate account. He is paying for a full detail to try and get this stuff off professionally. I warned him that i highly doubt it will work, but hey its free, and he is trying to resolve the problem so i agreed to give it a shot. Hopefully they know something I dont haha. I have an appointment to drop my car off at 9am Friday morning.

That sucks bro. I feel your pain. Last week they were filling pot holes on a road near me and I got a bunch of stuff stuck in the wheel wells. Fortunately my Roush side splitters kept it off the paint. The government doesn't think when they do roadwork and it pisses me off.

Your absolutely right. They could care less about the crap they leave on the road. Try and get in touch with the company that is doing the work if they did any damage. These guys have at least SHOWN they are trying so far. If the detail job doesn't work though, and i need to have it repainted, then we shall see if they still wanna help haha. Not holding my breath. Although they have already admitted fault.

Update

Took my car to the detailer this morning... Just picked it up. No luck. He couldn't get it off either. If anything I think they put a few more light scratches in the paint trying. The detailer called and talked to the contractor and told him he had no success. So the guy from the contracting company is going to speak with the VP of their company and get back to me on Monday.
The guy at the detailing shop asked the contracting guy what this stuff was. Apparently its some kind of special cement/sealer they use to hold the big metal traffic light poles in. I will try and get the actual name once i speak to the guy on Monday. Nasty crap.

Looks like my only hope is turning it into the insurance company.. Which means im gonna get stuck paying a $500 deductible. Awesome.
Sorry if this isn't much help. I used to work in a car wash in my teens. We used Varsol to remove tar (http://www.exxonmobilchemical.com/Ch...oductsservices). We must have had a 500 gal tank of it. We would just keep spraying in on, rubbing it with a towel, and repeat. Over and over again. We used to have cars with huge amounts of tar.

This crap you have doesn't look like tar. Like I think you said, it looks like some sort of adhesive.

In fact, it looks like there are particles embedded in this crap. What did you drive over? Was it regular road paving (asphalt) or something else?

Ah, just read the last post. This looks like epoxy. That would not be good.

That sucks, I would be pissed. Good luck.

Thanks for the help man i appreciate it. Yeah its nasty nasty stuff. Whatever it is. When i talk to the guy from the contracting company again on Monday, I'll make sure i get more info on it. Thats what sucks about having to drive to work so early. Workers think that nobody will be on the road i guess. Wrong place, wrong time. I understand it happens though, so im trying to stay calm and not get nasty with these guys. So far they have been very understanding and helpful. Now that they know there is no cheap way around it to repair, we shall see if they continue to be helpful lol.
