    This is what a good forum is all about...

    Any updates?

    How did the owner react when you returned to him the keys to a shiny, white truck without any concrete splatter?

    Re: Concrete overspray

    Just a shout-out to Eric!

    It was great meeting you and having you in my recent detailing class...

    Pictures & Comments from September 2012 Detailing Boot Camp




    Claying the 1940 Ford Coupe...



    Wiping the paint clean using Gtechniq Panel Wipe...








    Here's Eric working out the swirls and scratches next to the raised body line and curved area on the panel behind the where the convertible top attaches...



    Then around the edge of the convertible top...



    Then along the back edge...



    After edging the panel he knocks out the flat, major portion of this panel and ties all his work together with a few cover passes...












    Here's Eric cleaning a wool pad in a pad washer...




    After cleaning the pad, Eric is back at work...




    Dueling Rotary Buffers!

    Mike,

    Thank you for taking the time to post all of these pictures and give me a shout out! Being able to attend your class was a dream come true. After spending so much time on here reading all of your articles and watching your videos it meant a lot to have the opportunity to receive hands on training from you.

    I learned so much over the weekend and it was nice getting a lot of tips on little things that have enabled me to speed up my detail process. The cars you got for us to work on were amazing and getting the chance to use so many top notch tools and products made it even that much better. A big thank you to you and the rest of the AutoGeek staff that made this possible.

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for the kind words and also thank you for trying out the Back Set referenced in this thread to remove concrete overspray.

    Since you tested out and posted your success story and pictures of removing concrete overspray, I've shared this thread with at least 2 other people dealing with concrete overspray on paint and I'm sure I'll be sharing the link to this thread with even more people into the future...

    That's the power of a forum and good forum friends...

    Re: Concrete overspray

    So sad.....


    I just received an e-mail from a guy asking


    What to use to remove concrete splatter


    I always point people to this thread. Now the pictures have disappeared.

    The info is still good but still...

    A picture is worth a thousand words

    Question Re: Concrete overspray

    I also heard Vinegar is supposed to help remove concrete/cement. Can anybody confirm that?

    Thanks
