over-spray

Friend has just bought a cheap (silver) 4x4 from an auction.
What appeared to be dust all over the glass, etc. has turned out be
over-spray from a really cheap 'n' dodgy bonnet respray.
Anybody got an any ideas on how to best remove it?

thinners maybe?

or one of those paint scrapers you can buy that use a blade to scrape
with. You have to be very careful not to scratch the screen doing this
though - but i've taken the nato paint off the 101 windows like this.

Beware of this - they'll run off the glass and go places they shouldn't.

Water works adequately as a lubricant, and scrapers have done the trick
for me in the past - even with masonry paint, which *should* stick to
glass. If you can't find an actual scraper, try a single-sided razor
blade (best), or failing that, Stanley knife blades or snap-off blades.

panel wipe or thinners, and be careful, or you'll end up removing it from
the bonnet as well :-)

Indeed as already suggested the overspray can simply be wiped off using
cellulose thinners or acetone.

However you must be aware that any spillage on the bonnet will remove or
at least spoil the finish.
If the paint is a silver it's probably a metallic in which case the
finish will have a coat or two of lacquer, The lacquer will also be easy
to wipe off because it will still be soft, especially as it is unlikely
the bonnet or vehicle has been subject to oven baking which would make
the paint (at this stage) almost impervious to cellulose thinners.

However this will work to your advantage because the overspray won't be
oven baked so it will quite easily be wiped off.

Continuing to use a clean rag in the wiping off process so you do not
re-contaminate the glass etc.

Steve.
