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.
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.
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.
