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!
