    Fresh paint job on trunk lid. Possible holograms? Possible overspray?

    The trunk lid and spoiler of this 91' Camaro were re painted after a garage door accidentally got slammed on them. I will provide some before and after photos. What I think I'm seeing is holograms and paint overspray. How would you tackle this problem

    Fresh paint job on trunk lid. Possible holograms? Possible overspray? and what products would you use? Also any links to informative articles would be appreciated as well.

    Holograms are expected as most body shops just hit it with a rotary after color sanding. Should be easy to fix with a DA and a polishing pad.
    Clay the entire car to remove overspray and then polish the whole thing.

    Wow. As a painter myself, I'd never turn something like that back to a customer. Like BSoares said, clay it good, and then hit it with compound and a DA and it should all disappear.

    I wish I could. The customer took it home. I hope they weren't too disappointed. Perhaps they didn't even know the level that their paint could achieve. Thanks so much for your input and advice! It was sad watching black beauty leave. I hope she comes back to me so I can get another shot at that paint one day! I can't help but feel disappointed though... I wish I could have brought her back to life. Fresh paint job on trunk lid. Possible holograms? Possible overspray?

    Just to chime in,

    "Yes" those are hologram scratches.

    The repair is easy - re-polish using a foam pad on any orbital polisher with any polish that uses great abrasive technology.

    As for article, go to Skynet and type in key words using

    Remove holograms mike phillips


    And that should pull up something.
