    I've got a bit of black paint overspray on my truck, whats the best way to get it off without damaging my paint or clear coat? :cool:

    Will a clay bar kit do it?

    Clay bar will remove overspray. might as well do the whole truck while you're at it. good luck.

    Yes, go w/ a clay bar. Depending on how bad it is, you may have to bump up to a more aggressive clay, but start w/ a mild bar since theey wont leave any hazing. If you have clay magic sold near you, the blue is mild and the red bar is the stronger one.

    This might sound weird.... but if you have some go-jo (the creamy white kind). Slap it on and let it sit for a few minutes. YOu might have to scrub a little bit.

    I used it when I got that nasty 'line' paint on my truck.

    Using a clay bar is your best option.

    Thanks for the responses, I just bought a cheap Turtlewax ICE clay kit to try for now, i'm going to do my truck this afternoon and see how it turns out.
