Spray-painted car

Ok, so my co-worker got back from his vacation in vegas, and came home to his on his car. Now, I'm no paint and body expert, but he needs a new paint job. Would anyone happen to know for sure if this can be fixed without new paint?

Easily fixed with a good wetsanding and buffing. Sucks that it happened, but on the bright side, after he wetsands and buffs it, it will look brand new, if done professionaly.

Re: Spray-painted car

I took spray paint off my buddy's car with a clay bar. Worked like a charm.

Re: Spray-painted car

i would try polishing compound or scratchX first to see how easy/hard that is before sanding or anything more aggressive. that's just me...rubbing compound would be faster but you have to be very careful and you will need polishing compound to follow rubbing compound (the orange).
