How to Remove Clear Coat Overspray From a Windshield

108

With new paint comes a new layer of protective clear coat, and while paint on your windshield is easily seen and removed, clear coat overspray on the windshield is often overlooked. You can feel the clear coat, however, as even the smallest amount on the windshield creates small bumps. Removing the overspray yourself is possible. All you need is a specially formulated clay bar that pulls the clear coat from the windshield.

Things You’ll Need: Automotive clay bar, Clay bar lubricant, Microfiber towel

Instructions

  • Remove any dirt or debris from the affected surface by washing the windshield thoroughly. Pat the surface dry with a clean, lint-free towel to ensure no dirt remains on the surface that could cause scratching from the clay bar.
