Hey everybody, this sight is great. I decided to paint my own car. I removed the doors (they needed new bushings) and then painted the jams. They look great. But being the amateur that I am, I got paint and clear on the outside. How do I get that off before I paint the rest of the car? Do I sand to remove it all? Or do I fine sand it? Thanks.
You did'nt say what paint system you are using, but most of the time you can prep the same as the rest of the outside of the car. Sand and blend so there is no roughness.
then prime -seal or whatever. Good Luck

If the outside of the car is clear coat then just lightly wet sand the color overspray that is on top of the existing clear with 2000 wet and then buff. It should be fine. If it is not bb/cc then you have problems.

just sand it down if you have all ready prep the outside for paint then just hit with some 600 or finer but don't busted the clear. busting the clear could cause it to wrinkle when you apply the base to the outside .
also if you haven't preped the outside of the car and it has the factory paint and not a repaint then you can use thinner .careful not to get thinner on your jambs or your hard work had gone to__________.
