So instead of coming back some type of worrisome commentary, do you have any sort of constructive advise???Saliv8 said:I'm not sure, but I'd be worried about how it got there to begin with. I would think the paint work would have been done before the rack was installed!
gupt0014 said:It's a pretty small area...maybe 3 inches wide and the spray is pretty light. Any thoughts on how it might have gotton there??? The dealer has no idea.
How much would the clay bar cost???
I agree ... but make them fix it. Don't try it yourself, even if you can do it. It should not have been delivered to you with overspray on the rails. They should do it at no cost. If you do it and screw it up, it is all on your own wallet.Threadhead said:Also, sounds like your car was damaged in transit and the dealer had it fixed before you took delivery. Overspray does NOT come from the factory. I would press them pretty hard on this one. Personally, I would be outraged.
TheWorm said:Actually, I believe the original purpose of claybar was, in fact, for removing overspray. I've used it with success to remove overspray on parts of our GS that the housepainters so kindly left behind. Tho I'd guess that the type of paint that oversprayed might play a role in whether it comes off.
I personally would save myself a trip and claybar it. But if you don't have the claybar or inclination to DIY what the dealer should be handling, I'd ask the dealer to take care of it or ask them to pay for a detailer to do so.
