Exclamation Paint Overspray on my 2010 PSD!!! ;(

Front to back, top to bottom. White oil based paint oversray all over my new BLACK truck. Needless to say I'm pissed. How the hell am I going to get this paint off of my truck with out screwing up the clear coat?? When I rub my hand across the body of the truck it feels like sand paper...yes it's that bad. What am I going to do?

you can try a clay bar, but it sounds like your going to have to take it somehwere and have it wet sanded/buffed out.

I have the same thing happen to my dodge when I had a one side repainted because of scratchs. The side that didn't get painted felt like the clear coat had been sanded off. It took LOTS and LOTS of buffing to get it off. A clay bar will work but it take FOREVER. Best way is to get a automotive buffing wheel. That is how i did it and it saved some time but still took a long time to get the shine and smoothness back.

OK guys here's the scoop. Oil field paint crew came to the drilling rig. We were warned that they were going to be painting the rig and to move our vehicles out of the way which I did. I moved it about 70yds from the rig behind a 60ft noise barrier and still got it all over my truck. Of course they won't pay to have it fixed because they "gave prior notice that the painting would be taking place". I've attached a couple of pics that will give you some idea of just how bad this is.

Now I know what the sound of a windshield wiper running over sand paper...aka my windshield. It's horrible and I'm just sick over it.

The stuff that looks like dust....... yeah, that's paint.

you can use a razor scraper to get it off the windshield, the same kind that you would take inspection stickers off with.

pretty sure a couple of clay sessions will work. wash your truck then use a mothers or meguirs clay kit and then wash again. do this again a week later and see how she turns out. Happened to me back in like 01' they painted a grocery store i worked at and my car was f'ed. came out pretty good afterwards.
