    I think Meguiars makes an aggressive detailing clay thats supposed to work well for overspray. I've never tried it so maybe someone else in here can tell you if it will work.

    You will probably need the red Meguiars or Clay Magic clay bar. You will have to polish after using it because it will most likely lightly mar the paint.

    A PC isn't going to do much on overspray. You need to use clay bars or learn to use a rotary....clay bars are the non-abrasive route though.

    i used the mothers clay bar.i guess that one isnt what i should of bought.i'll try to use one those clay bars instead. would it work with paint that been on there for awhile? or is there a certain time period before nothing will work? its getting kinda annoying that i have about 5 differant people calling me to see if i can get paint out.so there isnt nothing chemical wise i can use to remove that will my pc?

    You are just going to have to use an aggressive clay then polish. Plastic razor blades also help but you need a very steady hand.

    If the overspray isn't fresh (as in hours old) mineral spirits won't be effective.

    if the over spray is on paint that has a clear coat or on any glass.... you can go to a paint shop and get reducer.... its what they ad to the paint before they actually spray the car..... it normally has taken overspray off for me. and it wont hurt your clear coat
