    Angry Barn roof aluminum paint overspray removal help

    I have a client with a Black crewcab duramax that was getting his barn roof repainted and now his truck has silver overspray all over it. I did a test spot last night with an SM Arnold Medium prep pad on the PC7424 and it is removing some of it but not all of it after going over a 2` x 2` area for several minutes at speed 2. I have plastic razor blades but it will take way to long to try to pop off every speck off by hand.

    Any chemical suggestions that will be safe on trim and paint?

    Is clay and prep pad my best (safest) bet for removal?

    I`m concerned about trying to polish them off and causing more swirls due to the aluminum based paint. I suppose frequent pad cleaning and changing pads will work. I`m planning on tossing the pads after this job regardless because I won`t trust them on another vehicle.

    I would try to find out what paint was used and what is recommended for cleanup before and after it has dried. Maybe you`ll be lucky and mineral spirits will cut it, that should be safe on the paint and on most of the trim, also.

    I tried but the owner cannot get a response from the painting company. It looks like it will be an insurance/court issue dealing with the money aspect of things.

    Wanted to update this thread. Mineral spirits is working great. Thanks to Setec for suggesting it.

    I am working on this truck in my spare time so I can only do sections at a time but so far so good. The mineral spirits is taking it off everything, glass, paint, trim. The texture trim takes the longest but it is working. I was concerned about the aftermarket painted fender flares and the PPF but those are doing fine. My method is do a section then immediately wash with McKees N-914 just to be safe. I am using some Sams club microfibers that I`m going to toss after use. I`m not paying much attention to any marring since I will be polishing it afterwards but so far i haven`t noticed much if any. Once I have time I will post some pictures.

    Thanks Tony. He is very happy that it`s cleaning up. I ordered some Kamikaze Miyabi and ISM to protect it with after all overspray is removed and I polish it. It`s going to be quite the change from how he dropped it off.
