    shit. i figured it out. Somehow overspray from doing the deck stain with a paint gun [on the opposite side of the house] must have traveled around into the garage on the day I was doing it...damn. guess i'll need someone to do some heavy duty wet sanding

    Looks kind of 'interesting' but not sure I'd like it on the glass. Hope you had the paint well-sealed and waxed- just maybe the overspray didn't bond too well-

    Claybar took an unknown overspray off my car. I'd try that before anything else.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that sounds like a horrible idea.

    This is the exact reason I took my car to my parents house to store it while my neighbor got his house painted. I have heard many sad storys about overspray blowing onto someones car. I don't think clay bar will remove oil base laq. but it probably won't hurt to try a small area.

    Ive got this too from spraypainting in my yard.... claybar doesnt work. Reducer doesnt work... buffer/sander is the only way to go...
