car quest sign off my truck!! Ideas please

My truck was prevously an automotive delivery truck and the sign that was there left a mark that wont come off with a power washer. you can make out what the letters that use to be there. It the orginal paint so it actaully whiter then the rest of my truck. Its on the tailgate and rear fenders.

Any ideas how to get this off? Dont like looking at it!

Take it to a body shop and have them buff it out.

It might not be possible with out repainting. It depends how long it was on there. Pics would be helpful.

haven't tried anything other then taking it to the local self wash.

Definitely will try getting it buffed out, that seems like a good first step. \

Dont have a camera at the moment
