    Overspray on astra mk4 3 door rear windows.

    Spraying my car arden blue, and have seen whilst putting back together, the overspray someone along the time has left. any ideas how to get off. Tried thinners, panel wipes, scratching,t-cut polish. Tried everything we have in our bodyshop to get it off, but just wont budge. Any help would be grateful.

    Heard a clay bar is good for this.

    Also a razor blade, but be very careful not to scratch the glass

    It wasnt on the glass. Was on the seal around the glass. Its piece of piss to get off the glass as all you do is run a blade along it flat and will come straight off. all done now tho. used a blade on it, scratching it so it obviously got the laquer off the top of the base coat. then slapped some thinners on and dried quickly. lovely job.
