Another choice is the "Clay Bar"
At any paint jobber store and mild over spray will take about 20
minutes to do a whole car. Somewhere around a $20 bill.

this is on a suede black finish as well. I forgot to add that. I have a very small amount of yellow overspray on the hood I would like to get rid of

here is a pic of the yellow overspray. I was thinking of maybe going around the outside of the flames with my airbrush and misting in some yellow to give it a smoking effect to hide the over spray if I can't get it off te black

I'm with Barry, the clay bar is the way to go! Those things are like magic (one is called "Clay Magic" for good reason). I have taken cured urethane primer overspray, hard waterspots, off cars, without so much as a hint of damaging the paint. I have taken direct overspray off plexiglass windows! With no harm what so ever to the window. I am telling you, if you havn't tried one of them, you are really missing out.

I have never used the 3M brand one but the part number is 38070 I have to assume it works as all the rest. The only one that I have used that I have a number for you is from NAPA 7260 in the MS line. I'm telling you, these things are great.

You don't have to buff after or do anything for that matter. Use a "lube" as it says on the package like water or the stuff that comes with it (seems like window cleaner to me) and it works like a charm. After using it you may want to wax or glaze it, but I honestly don't remember seeing anything you couldn't just wash off.

What is does is "sticks" to anything that is ON the surface of the paint, glass, gel coat, counter top, chrome, anything that is smooth, and pulls it off as it glides over the smooth surface.

It is really neat stuff! The problem with compounds is you are taking paint off as well (or clear).

This stuff is the real deal, one of those ONLY ON TV sort of fantasy products that does miracles. But this one really works.

Have you tried the clay? I have to tell you, I use to do the same thing, sand it and rub it or just rub it. I wouldn't think of doing that after using clay. Think about this, say you had a perfect sanded and buffed paint, show finish. One day it gets urethane primer over stray, big droplets of urethane primer. You sure wouldn't want to start sanding on that! Well, take a clay bare and simply "wash" it using a clay bare as a wash rag (basically that is what you do) and after you are done you put a coat of glaze or something like Meguires #7 and it is done.

Believe me, the clay bare is a tenth of the work of rubbing.

The only thing I use now is the NAPA clay bar. It is a must have around a body shop.

dubie, have you sanded the tape edges on your flames yet? If not now is a good time for that, and it will take the overspray off at the same time.

I have a flat black finish on the truck and didn't think I should sand anything because I can't really wax or polish it back to a shine. Anyone have experience with this matter finish? i guess it's like a semi gloss, halfway between dull and glassy. I just don't want to do anything thats gonna screw up my black

What exactly is this finish? Is it a cheapie flat black Rustolium, a flattened enamel or urethane or is it a base clear with a flattened clear?

If it is some cheapie paint or a primer or something, you are pretty much going to have to test the clay on it and see how it goes. If it is a base with a flattened clear, I would say the clay will not harm it at all. You really need to get a clay bar and give it a try.

This was a single stage urethane paint that had flattening powder and clear coat added in. I just have to mix equal parts of Component A (paint) and componenet B (catalyst), thin it down, and shoot it on.
So I should be safe using the clay bar then?? I was gonna go pick one up anyways to try on a couple other things that have overspray on them, like a couple tool boxes.
