    Angry gelcoat overspray on trailor

    Has anybody had to remove gelcoat overspray from a painted trailor? I had some minor touchups done and my whole trailor is covered with white gel overspray. If anybody knows how to remove it without ruing the paint I sure would appreciate it.

    How is your trailer finished? If it is painted then you can try and buff it out. That is your only choice. Accetone will not touch it. Lots of acetone will soften it some but can dull the paint on the trailer. I am not sure other then to buff it out.

    Put your best foot forward!

    If it doesn't buff out, I would try wet sanding with some 1500-2000 then buff.
