Default Oh noo, removing spray paint

I always seem to do something stupid like this, I was spray painting at work the other day thinking my car was far enough away and not down wind from me painting. Well, I got the car washed yesterday and found that my car is covered in a light mist of spray paint. I was wondering if a clay bar will take this off, and if not, any other recommendations? I may take it to a detailing place as i don't really have the time or patience, and it seems every time I try to fix something like this by polishing, etc, I make things worse.

As someone who used to detail for a living, I agree. It is time consuming, though, but it will also take care of a lot of other little blemishes you really didn't know were there. It will be a big difference. Good luck!

Well I did it, and it worked and took most of it off. But because I did not put in the time, there is still some left. I have a lack of patience and that gets me into trouble. Thanks for the advice though guys. Pics will follow in the Your Ride section since its time to ***** it up a little anyway.
