Start by using a claybar. Use it on the paint and the windows. It's the least aggressive method. Don't use rubbing compound, you only have so much clearcoat.

If there's a body shop supply store near you. look for a claybar specifically to remove overspray. It's a little different texture than the consumer-grade bars. But if not, try the Mothers or Meguiar's kit. I'll bet claying will work. If not hit me back and we'll get into light and medium-cut paint cleaners...but only after U try clay.

Hey

What did you use to paint your body kit? I know this is off topic, but Im going to be painting my Black Widow Body kit for my 95 Accord Ex soon and I would just like to know the steps you took to paint your body kit. Thanks!

I think rubbing compound takes layers off of the coat...kind of like microsanding.

YYYES! YOU ARE CORRECT! :)

If you can't find a body shop supply house with a claybar specifically for overspray, go for the Mother's at your autoparts store.

clay bar does wonders for your paint..after claybaring a section of your car you will be able to feel the difference, but make sure you take a day where you will be able to work on you cars exterior all day
