    P***ed off!!! Left my car on the workshop yard the other day and went out to help my mate with work. Got back and the spray booth door had been left open, White over spray all over my car.

    ... It comes off my windows when I scratch it but my brother who works for a spray company said to machine it with some G3 .. So am going to do that as soon as my collar bone fixes up properly.

    So why am at it am going to get some good wax on it but should I clay bar it too? It's never been done on the car and am just thinking it might help out the paint work on my car seeming am going through all the trouble of machine G3 the car...

    Oh really?! So the machine and G3 isn't needed then?

    Tidy! I'll get on that as soon as I can! Didn't think flaying it would get it off tbh

    Get a heavy duty clay bar and it should take it off. But personally I'd just go over the car with thinners on a rag and take the spots of that way (tar remover or white spirit would work but more time consuming) and then polish it. With compounding the spots you could be asking for more trouble and don't leave it too late, best to attack relatively fresh paint before it properly cures..

    for start off don't wax it polish removes the overspray..

    German paint is hard stuff, I would get some thinners and use that, it will take it off with ease and wont go through due to the laquer underneath..

    its safe and easy to do with a cloth.

    wax with a decent wax after or send the car to a detailer

    if your not 100% sure what your doing, machining it with g3 will really mess your whole paint job up,

    persionally it try a good t-cut and a polish
