    i just got my car repainted (white), and now, i've got overspray all over my dash, shift knob, steering wheel, gauge cluster and everything else.

    my most pressing problem is how to remove the overspray on the gauge. coz whenever the sun shines on it from a certain angle, i couldn't read the gauges. and the cover is made of plastic, so i don't think thinner or solvents of the same nature would do.

    please help. thanks!

    for the plastic guages I think claying will do the job if the overspray is not that heavy..

    inquire ka muna sa bb, baka it'll turn out cheaper than buying the stuff you need. one bar of clay costs 750 already..

    if its acrylic paint or urethane paint chances are it won't come of kahit clay... kasi the thinners in the paint may have "eaten" thru the plastic already. and you all know what happens with plastic + thinners.

    happened to my hi-ace we clayed it and malabo pa rin yung plastic covering the cluster panel. di na naalis ng clay yung over spray. mine was over sprayed with dark blue
