Can anyone give me a guestimate?

So my neighbor got his fence painted white and some of the spray got on my car. Now my black car has white spots all over it and i can feel it on the window and car. the spots are about as small as a dot a pen would make and feel like sand when i run my hand over it. It also got on my new mercedes :(. Can anyone give me an estimate of the work that would have to be done as well as the cost? Thanks

Clay Bar should remove the paint.

Ditto. It will cost you about 20 bucks and a few hours.

How much is bail money? Swift punch in the face of the painter is in order. Then ~$50 for a claybar kit and some wax

The painters insurance (if he has it) will be covering it. At this point it most likely costed him money to paint my neighbors fence.

I'd go along with the punch in the nose for the painter. Would have been nice business practice to have let you known before he started painting. Just a chance that you might like to move your cars first.

Painter's insurance or neighbors homeowner insurance.

Doesn't sound like a very good painter?

Painters insurance. I don't think homeowners insurance would really work in this situation

Take it to a good detailer and have your neighbor (or painter) pay. You get the whole car cleaned and waxed that way.

A knot on the forehead of that knucklehead and about a 100$ worth of clay bar should fix it!!

Any reputable auto detailer should be able to buff and wax it back to original shine.

The paint should come off fairly easily with claybar. If you don't want to mess with it, just take both cars to a reputable detailer and they will look like new again.

I would not worry with doing it myself I would go ask the neighbor for their homeowners insurance information (they will go after the painter) and make a claim and take it to a reputable detailer and have it done and have it nano waxed. He just gave you your summer time detail on both vehicles. Do not forget to check your windows and siding on your home for damage as well. This will be more expensive.

Why get insurance even involed. It is a minimal cost and should just be paid out of pocket. I had overspay on my CTSV and it was 110.00 to take it to a body shop for a professional paint restore( clay bar, waxed, buffed to a high shine). It looked better than the day I bought it.

I bet the price of detailing a car in NY is considerably higher than Colorado and if he has more damage than just the cars is why.

Using oven cleaner is risky business. Oven cleaner definitely removes paint, but if you leave it on just a little too long, it removes all the paint!
It's also a great engine degreaser, but same story there, leave it on too long and you have a bare metal engine. Ask me how I know.

This is your best option, unless you want to put the time and effort into doing it yourself.
