    I was contacted recently by an insurance company about a possible wrap change and later by the customer to set up an appointment to look at the wrap. I haven't seen it yet but I have an appointment to look at the car tomorrow and I want to get some thoughts ahead of time.
    The car was fully wrapped and later on a painting company's over-spray got on the wrap somehow and she/insurance company needs an estimate to replace the wrap.
    Has anyone dealt with this issue before or have suggestions? Is there a cleaner/paint remover option first or is this usually a full removal/re-install?
    Thanks in advance!

    Winsol Polyclean might do it, but from what I've seen it can take the sheen out of the signs/graphics, however, a small amount of overspray should buff right off. I've never used it on a fleet laminate, but we use it on street signs and such. With any cleaner you should test a small inconspicuous spot before going all out.

    Depending on the severity of the overspray I, personally, would lean towards redoing the project.

    A clay bar is used on paint. I think it will scratch it/dull it but worth a try. The better ones are sold at autobody stores but you can get them about anywhere, probably even walmart.
