removing overspray

hey guys i noticed today on my 01 TJ that i picked up some over spray from something. Could have been spray paint while working on another project in my garage. Anyway my hood now feels like sandpaper. Is there anything i can do to take it off without hurting my paint? I assume that wet sanding would do it but that is out of my league. Is there any other options?

thanks,

JW

I think one brand is about is good as another. Sometimes Wal Mart even has them. If you've never used a clay bar you won't believe how good they work. I keep one in my garage all the time. They're good for cleaning other crud off your paint too. They require a little elbow grease but not too much.

Agreed. They are all pretty much the same. I would buy one in a kit that has everything you need. ANy auto parts store will have them.

I spent $20 on a kit at the local auto parts store today. Washed the jeep spent about 30 min on the hood with the clay bar then put on a fresh coat of wax and i was amazed. It is like brand new. The clay bar took all of the over spray off and left the paint smooth as a babies bottom. Thanks so much for the help!
