    Overspray

    Hi everyone! Strong first post =)

    I have a 2011 WRX that I bought about 4 months ago that got littered with some sort of overspray of a roofing material today at work. I decided clay barring the car will do the best job of removing the overspray but I am concerned with whether or not I should wash the car before I clay bar. I guess my real concern is if the overspray will cause scratching when I dry the car before I clay bar. Any advice is appreciated!

    get the clay bar of choice and follow the directions to the letter you'll be fine... but rule of thumb is ALWAYS wash before any sort of polishing/deep cleaning.

    Clay bar works good on A LOT of different things. A buddy of mine had grey rattle can overspray on his passenger side of his red truck and I got it all off with clay bar.

    If this is a gooey substance like tar I think you should remove that before buffing. Varsol and a rag works well for that.

    GooGONE works good also on gooey or sticky substances and will not hurt your paint.
