Default Overspray........

Hey all,

Did a bit of rust repair and painting a few weeks ago to the 97 on the very front tip of her hood.
Had the cars front end covered up pretty well, but didn't notice she got some primer over spray onto the hood..... not sure how it happened but it did.
Anyways, the car went to the shop the day after the paint repairs, and I didn't notice the over spray until I saw her today..... it'* been 3 weeks.
Do I have any chance of removing it?

Default clay bar

Use a clay bar its safe for your paint and you wont wreck it just incase you **** up the wetsanding process, 3000 grit sandpaper and lots of water, just did my dads 69 dodge challenger, its all been repaainted and stuff the water sand and polish works excellent but when we had the car painted we had 4 coats of clear put on. Use the Clay it is the best way.
