Re: overspray

Clay bar or maybe some thinner. Try it on a spot down low to see if it softens the paint.

Re: overspray

i have used paint thinner to get tar off, just be sure to wash and wax the truck afterward.

make sure not to leave the thinner on real long after you get the over spray off, do a section at a time.

and kick you buddys azz. lol

Re: overspray

Try the clay bar first.... Using thinner (to me) is like washing greasy parts with gasoline. It works but, there are better/safer ways to go about it.

Re: overspray

There are many different levels of clay bars out there. Some are real light, some are real aggressive. Don't get discouraged if the clay won't take it off easily, it may be the clay and not the method.

IMO, I would use thinner as a last resort. Clay will take off most overspray, light or heavy, especially when it hasn't had a long time to cure.

Re: overspray

Clay bar will take every bit of it off. I have done this many, many times.

Re: overspray

No. Not sand paper. The clay bar looks kinda like playdoe. I use the Blue Magic clay bar. Seems like it works better than the other bars. The fine will work.

Re: overspray

Getting off the paint will be the easy part. Getting it off all the textured plastic is going to suck! Try to get it off asap. The longer you wait the harder the paint is going to get.
