Re: removing black paint specks/dots

Have you tried painting the rest of the car Grenada black? 2000 grit wet sand with car wash water, rubbing compound to bring back the shine. I so hate spray splatter. My idea is soooooooooooooo last resort.

Re: removing black paint specks/dots

I'd try a claybar treatment followed by a polish with your usual car polish first, remembering to keep the clay lubricated. (water is NOT an acceptable lubricant) Failing that, carefully wet sand with 2000cr abrasive paper.

did you say you hat the overspray on just the taillights, or bodywork as well? Claybar/polish will get the overspray off the bodywork - don't try and wetsand the body (unless you're trained in body and paint prep, in which case you probably wouldn't have asked this question)

Re: removing black paint specks/dots

Yea theres lots of really small black dots on my body paint, tail lights and some on my wheel rim. So i should just clay bar it with lubricant and polish to get it off?

Re: removing black paint specks/dots

Yes. Some people say to wash the car and use the car wash soap as the lubricant. I don't mind this approach, as long as you never allow the surface to dry.
