A knot on the forehead of that knucklehead and about a 100$ worth of clay bar should fix it!!

Any reputable auto detailer should be able to buff and wax it back to original shine.

The paint should come off fairly easily with claybar. If you don't want to mess with it, just take both cars to a reputable detailer and they will look like new again.

I would not worry with doing it myself I would go ask the neighbor for their homeowners insurance information (they will go after the painter) and make a claim and take it to a reputable detailer and have it done and have it nano waxed. He just gave you your summer time detail on both vehicles. Do not forget to check your windows and siding on your home for damage as well. This will be more expensive.

Why get insurance even involed. It is a minimal cost and should just be paid out of pocket. I had overspay on my CTSV and it was 110.00 to take it to a body shop for a professional paint restore( clay bar, waxed, buffed to a high shine). It looked better than the day I bought it.

I bet the price of detailing a car in NY is considerably higher than Colorado and if he has more damage than just the cars is why.

Using oven cleaner is risky business. Oven cleaner definitely removes paint, but if you leave it on just a little too long, it removes all the paint!
It's also a great engine degreaser, but same story there, leave it on too long and you have a bare metal engine. Ask me how I know.

This is your best option, unless you want to put the time and effort into doing it yourself.
