    The most common place to get overspray on your car is a body shop by Mike Phillips

    The most common place to get overspray on your car is a body shop by Mike Phillips




    I've typed about this topic so much in my life I guess it's time to write an article on it...


    "The most common place to get overspray on your car is a body shop"


    You can quote me on that.



    Why?

    Simple... because they spray paint at body shops and not just in the enclosed paint booth. Even if they only sprayed paint inside the paint booth overspray is still a problem because,

    A: Airborne sticky particles of fresh paint can travel and land everywhere and anywhere.

    B: Not all shops tape-off and cover-up 100% of the portions of a car NOT being painted. For example if painting a fender, some shops won't tape-off and cover all the other parts of the car like the back wheels, or back of car, etc. Overspray paint is non-selective, it drifts in the air and sticks wherever it lands.


    So...

    See this article, it's also in my how-to book...

    While not exactly related, I used an airless sprayer this weekend to paint my porch. I ended up with overspray on my drive way 40 ft away or so. I was really glad I kept the garage sealed up.

    Good thinking...

    Overspray drifts easily via the wind and any air currents in the area.


    It takes minutes to create an overspray headache and sometimes hours to undo the damage...

    I can relate to this post. Had the hood of my SUV replaced/repainted by a shop that does very good work and I was super pleased with the results. A week later when washing the vehicle I found what appeared to be a very fine clear coat over spray mist on my wheels. Was able to remove with clay and then polish them but it was added work for me that was unnecessary.

    I own a small painting company... Spraying outdoors is like a major, absolute, last-resort. Overspray is no joke.

    I just did a spray job at an automotive plant and we spent twice as long prepping to spray as we did actually spraying. If I get paint on stuff that isn't supposed to be painted, I'm on the hook to fix it. I don't understand how these body shops get away with such shoddy practices...

    Had to have a fender painted on my car, the work turned out great with perfect color match. The weather turned and I wasn't able to do a full blown wash on the car for two weeks. Once I did it revealed a nice crisp mask line and faint clear coat over spray across the hood.

    Decided just to fix it myself, quicker and I knew that I would do the least harm in removing it. It should have never happened.
