In the coming warmer months, my friends and I from opencarry.org are planning on doing some graffiti removal to get some positive open carry attention while at the same time doing some helpful community service.
On the face of it it seems pretty simple. Get written permission from the cities or private property owners, get donations of paint or have property owners maybe pay for it, and use a power washer where needed. We even have someone working on making our group into a non profit organization, so by spring we should even be able to get tax deductible donations of graffiti removal stuff from stores, as well as other stuff for charitable uses.
Simple as it seems, and even though I've got plenty of experience with painting and surface restoration, I'm sure that someone who's done this before could give me some useful pointers. I have seen a number of specialized graffiti removal products, but rather than make mistakes ordering junk, it would be nice if anyone here with experience could tell me what works. Also, is there a type of public official that I would normally want to contact at the city level if I'm inquiring about painting or power washing city property? What if I wanted to restore something federal, like a mail box?
Thanks in advance for any info.
