Spray paint all over Camaro!

Got a 2011 black camaro ss. I was spray painting with yellow rustoleum. The wind must have carried the mist in the garage and evenly covered the car with a fine tint of yellow. Any ideas how to remove it?

Pics? Sounds like you at least need a body shop to take the clear coat off and re-apply.

Its coming off with a microfiber rag and some spray wax but its not getting all of it. You cant notice unless your really close otherwise it just looks like dust.

You might want to try to clay it out first. Since its on top of the clear coat that might be the ticket to get this stuff off if its coming out mostly with microfiber.

I was gonna suggest clay bar as well, maybe even some slight use of acetone if the paint is in a centralized place. Just use and wax quickly.

Yeah- a clay bar will easily take it off and leave the clear smooth and clean. Don't use any harsh cleaners.

Not really as long as its done quickly and liberally, I didnt lose any clearcoat, I just applied VERY LITTLE to a paper towel rubbed quickly and IMMEDIATELY washed/waxed the area. worked absolutely perfectly and my clearcoat was fine, but if you dont wanna risk it, clay bar is your best bet.

You used paper towel on your paint, what would ever, ever use paper towel on your paint.

God no don't use spray wax. You're gonna seal it that way. Adams clay bar FTW!

Adams has the biggest bar anyone sells and you don't measure a claybar on how many cars it does. You use it until you can't find a clean spot on the claybar itself. You keep folding the claybar on to itself until its clean. Once you folded itself so many times and there's no clean spot then you throw it out. With Adams you can break the claybar into thirds and that size should be sufficient.

You should just keep painting it yellow.....then put a wood spoiler/wing on the back to top it off. I'm sure everyone will think it is professionally done. Dare to be different.

I would use a solvent on a cotton cloth. Clay can drag more scratches into the car, seen that a ton of times.

Go to a body shop supply store, ask for some SEM Solve or equivelent. SEM Solve is a solvent specifically for removing overspray, tar... I'd do at as soon as possible, the more it cures the tougher to remove.

http://www.semproducts.com/Catalog.asp?prod=81

If you do you clay, do a very small area and then hold a shop light over it in a dark garage to make sure your not dragging scratches. I saw someone do his entire car, then pulled it into the garage under the lights - millions of scratches. He was trying to remove rail dust and it was just dragging it all over the paint.

Clay will not put more scratches in a car if you properly wash the car first and then keep the clay clean by folding it in on itself as explained previously. Someone hasn't watched the Junkman's videos!

My wife was backing out of the garage and grazed the front fender against the white latex paint on the garage door trim leaving about a 3 inch square of white on the rjt. Eventually I thought of acetone. I used it with a soft rag and presto, the white paint just sort of evaporated with very little rubbing. This all took about 10 seconds. I then rubbed some of my carnuba wax on the spot and it looks good as new. If it took the clear coat off, I sure can't tell. The acetone evaporates instantly. I can't believe that the clear coat is that easily by a few seconds of acetone.
