See Small Specs On Your Paint? Rough Texture? It’s Paint Overspray.

When you see colored small specs on your paint or feel a rough texture on the panel when you slide your hand over due to tiny paint particles that have landed on your vehicle. Usually this happens when you’re near a construction site or someone is painting outside and the wind carries over a very thin layer of paint particles over to your vehicle. It’s most likely all over your vehicle; glass, paint, trim, wheels, etc… it’s not fun to see, let alone to remove it from all those surfaces. That being said, small specs on your paint and the rough texture feeling could be something else like other types of surface containments.

Don’t Do More Harm Than Good To Your Paint

Scratching and rubbing your paint vigorously with a towel, plastic razor, or brush will do nothing other than install a bunch of swirls and scratches into your paint.

We see this time and time again. It just adds more work to your vehicle because now there’s two parts that we have to go over.

The first part is removing the overspray. Sometimes it’s easy; sometimes it’s very difficult. It depends on the type of paint and the surface that it’s on (i.e., trim vs wheels vs paint vs glass).

Many times, even with safe removal methods, it will cause minor marring to the paint. Because of this, a light polish will be needed to remove the marring.

However, if you aggressively scratch your paint, we’ll then have to use a more intense method of paint correction to remove those heavy swirls and scratches you caused.

Our Overspray Removal Process:

Wash the vehicle; including wheels, tires, and fenders
Start the removal process with various tools and products; clay bar and adhesive remover
Wipe down the affected areas to remove any chemical residue
Light polish to remove any light marring, swirls, or scratches
Add spray wax or ceramic coating for shine and protection
Dress tires with a water-based, no-sling dressing

Now, this service in itself is good enough to get your paint back to where it was (and sometimes, even better). That being said, if you’d like to increase the overall appearance of the vehicle, a  service will achieve that for you.

This service requires you to be in our shop, to avoid weather conditions and to use all the tools we can offer to get the job done effectively.

From our experience, when we perform a Premium Wash on a vehicle that has had overspray sitting on the paint for an extended period of time, we’re still able to remove it with the proper procedures. There’s no permanent or irreversible damage we’ve seen.

A clay bar treatment is a great option to cleanse the paint from above surface contaminants. It’s what we do with every Premium Wash service. However, when it comes to overspray, it’ll need to be “pulled” off differently. You can spend more time claying but you won’t get favorable results. It’s a very tedious and time-consuming process.

Generally speaking, yes. We can remove it from glass, wheels, fenders, trim, etc… However, that doesn’t mean we’ll be able to remove 100% of all the overspray. But some areas and surfaces will be more problematic than others. Especially depending on the type of paint that landed on your vehicle.

It might be able to remove a tiny fraction of the overspray that has landed on your vehicle, but for the most part, it won’t do much. You can try your best to work the product into the area with a towel, but you’re not going to see a significant difference.
