How old is your paint job? is it just a light mist on the new paint or did it actually cover it? I would say give it a couple weeks for your new paint job to dry pretty good and go over it with a buffer and polishing compound but thats just me, i'm sure one of the old guys here knows exactrly what to do

If the paint job has not been color sanded and buffed out yet, that may take care of it. If that has already been done you could use some solvent. Start with plain mineral spirits first. If that does not work move to lacquer thinner. Do not soak the area, wet a rag and wipe it quickly across the paint to remove it. If that doesn't work you will have to wet sand the area and rebuff. I know the lacquer thinner will soften the clear coat, but a quick light application should not hurt it.

I would take no chances.

Go to local auto paint store and get a clay bar kit $20.
If they don have one they can order and have it next day as long as the paint did not melt into the car paint this will take it off.

CLAY BAR, CLAY BAR use the clay bar. DO NOT use lacquer thinner at his point.

If you guys havn't found the magical clay bar you really need to get one. When I was repping I had people throw all kinds of problems at me "So, remove this and I will stock it in the store" They would walk me out to some God awful problem and say "Have at it". It failed me very seldom. I removed vicious water spots off of near new bc/cc, glass. DIRECT overspray off plexiglass windows! Urethane primer specs off fresh bc/cc and off OEM paint. We are talking year old urethane off paint, no problems what so ever. No need to even buff later.

Who makes that clay bar you guys are talking about? A few years ago we used one that I believe was Mequires and it was great. Then they changed something about it and it did not seem the same. I haven't used it since. I am interested in trying again.

Don't know who makes it but NAPA auto parts disributes one under part number 7260 in the MS line. It is a kit with a lubricant. The bars are 7261 (fine)and 7262 for med. I never used one side by side to see the difference. I can't understand being they are not "cutting" anything.

"MS" is the Martin Senour line. I only mentioned it in case they don't have it in the inventory system they could order it for you.

McGuire's has a great clay bar.........and yes it works wonders


By the way..........sense your clear is well catalyzed you won't hurt anything by rubbing the over spray with a mild solvent.......you may have a haze after your done, but it will come right out with a quick buffing.

I don't know squat about painting a car but I do know the clay bars work wonders. My brother cleaned up a similar problem on a beautiful black Buick GN.
