Any advice for my overspray?

Chesapeake energy was painting some of their equipment and my place of business as well as others were unlucky enough to be downwind of it. Even though our parking lot is well over half a mile from where they were painting, lots of cars got speckled with paint. The business closest to the painting called the cops, and let us know what had happened. We wrote down our information so they could get back to us and have our cars cleaned. After two weeks, it doesn't seem like Chesapeake is going to be doing anything about it.

Sooo...i've tried cleaning it myself. I cleaned my car with dish soap to strip the car clean. Then I clay barred the entire car (Mothers brand). I was thinking it would clean off most of the overspray. But instead it left it mostly untouched. The only thing else I know to do is buy Meguiars aggressive clay bar and give that a try. Then the paint would just need to be buffed out because the aggressive clay bar sometimes marrs the paint. Any suggestions would be great. The car is like 80% speckled to varying degrees and I cant even scratch it off with my nail.

I would make those a$$holes fix it. Insurance should have to come into play on that.

Call Nick, the company that did the painting is responsible for handling the overspray that they caused on your car and all the cars within distance of the paint.
So they should be responsible for having it fixed. (by him ) heh

Yeah, like Brent said, the company that sprayed is responsible for having it cleaned off. We do this quite a bit for different companies around the metroplex. Nothing that can't be taken care of

Just have them give me a call, or you call me, and we'll get it taken care of.
