Hey guys,

I got a ap2 bumper recently it looks like there was an area that got oversprayed with clear coat and there is one single dried drip.

Is there a way to get rid of this safely?

Thanks,

Jim

i would:

first try claying the area...

if that didnt make me happy, then i might have to use a really fine grit steel wool/sandpaper or polish (start more aggressive and then "back down").

or i would take it back to the body shop that messed it up!!

The way we do it at the body shop, for the drip of clear: we use a razor and cut out the clear run, then block wet sand.. then buff...

But id becareful with that, you can easily screw it up if u dont know what to do..

Yeah if I were you I would pass on cutting on anything and leave it to pros like Stealt_SUX. I am pretty sure clay won't be abrasive enough to take a dry clear coat run off as well.

So I suggest Wet sand with 2000gritt, using block wet sand method then finishing it off with 3000 and buffing it out with polish/cleaner and wax it after. You can get away with just 2000gritt then buff, but if working by hand 3000gritt is recommended.

Correct me if im wrong Wash & Wax gurus out there.

I use my Meguiar Uniblock sanding blocks. They run all the way to a true 3000 grit.
The average response time for 911 is over 4 minutes, the average response time for a 9mm 115 grain Winchester Ranger JHP is 1320 fps.

Yea it would be smarter to do that wet sanding with a hard block (not soft block) use a heavy grit to bring that drip down faster... if u use 1000 it will take forever..
I would use 600 or 800 and get it almost gone then I would step it up to 1000 and maybe finish with 2000 then buff.

Never was worried about the drip... worried about the surrounding clear. You can lower drip no problem. With stock paint I wouldn't even risk with 1000 or 1500. That is the reason why I said I hope that they put extra clear.

When body shop knows the car will bea show car they know to put extra layer or two of clear because it will be wet sanded down the road. When this is just a respray @ regular shop on regular car... 600 gritt I would worry about touching the surroinding paint, but not the drip. You never know what the thickness might be.

Think before you post... I think YOU need to take it down a notch there tough guy. This thread is not to argue with you but to make sure that the person doesn't mess up his brand new paint job by making that spot fail soon after this procedure is done. :pat:

The clear looks like it's pretty thick on there... it actually looks more like a drip than a run.

I will call up the body shop and see if they can do it for me. I thought it might be easy for me to do myself and I would learn something in the process but I'm afraid to do some unintentional damage.

Thanks for everyone's help so far and if anyone has more options, please keep posting :)
