over spray

I recently painted My 66 Pontiac like 2 days ago,My problem is i had some runs to wet sand out and I got some over spray.I used a very fine metal flake (004) mixed in to clear coat then just plain clear over it.I was wondering If some thing like that could be buffed out and if so,what sort of compound should I use?Im really trying to prevent re-clearing it(I already assembled it so Im hoping I dont haved to basicaly start over.Thanx in advance folks!

Please explain exactly what this "overspray" is. The term overspray usually is meant there is a very light "coat" of paint on something that wasn't suppose to be painted. Like the masking paper wasn't stuck down well and some paint or clear got on the windows or on a panel that wasn't being painted. What exactly are you referring to?

Ok,The over spray is on panels that got like a mist coat because I figures instead of masking,I would allow for some overspray thinking it would be minimum being it was clear coat But instead,it turned out to be pretty noticeable as like a flatter coat ,as compared to being glossy.Does that make sense?

The first thing I would go after it with would be a clay bar, these clay bars are an amazing tool for overspray. Then if that doesn't work you will be cutting and buffing it. Do you plan on sanding (cutting) and buffing it anyway?

I was planning to just do a polish buff because the fine flake I use will loose its color if I color sand or buff thru the clear(I only have 1 good coat of clear on it)I had already sanded a couple runs I had and had to re-paint then re-clear,hence the over spray.I wanted to keep the buffing to a minimum if possible so I dont go down to the flake.

This is what I was talking about. Clay Magic Auto Clay Bars - The Best Auto Detailing Clay Bar for Car Care

It should be done first even if you are sanding and buffing.

The good thing is you've probably learned 2 things from this.
1 coat of clear isn't enough to flat and buff and always mask out what you aren't painting.

Zero, not one single bit. It just "grabs" the stuff on top and removes it.

Sounds like you've been trying to blend the clear ?
You really should be clearing the whole panel then you wouldn't get the overspray

Ahhhhhhhh I am missing something, NO that clay bar wouldn't work if you blended out the clear, that requires LIGHTLY buffing. Open blends ALWAYS fail at some point, NOT a good idea. There are very few times when an open blend save any more time than just clearing the whole panel.

Thanks Daz for pointing that out, I missed it.
