paint fumes

Just waxed my FW for the first time and was surprise to see a lot of Paint fumes on the wall and windows outside.
Is there a special product to clean this up.

Have a 2013 Crusader 290RLT

Weird.......


Especially since there is no paint on the Crusaders. The caps are colored gelcoat just like the sidewalls.

I'm sure you are right but paint I know and the back windows have a lot and the back right side on the walls there is a lot of paint fumes, my question is can I use a solvent that would not harm the gelcoat??

Sorry maybe the wrong word(i'm french) when you paint with a gun I call it paint fumes in the air that can shift to a surface other then the one you are painting, hope my explanation helps to understand my meaning

Ok its like very tiny paint particles, you can only feel them when you past your hand over them, just got the FW recently and only wash it a few times, but when I waxed it this week i noticed it.
The FW went from the dealer to my house only so it had to have been done at the factory, what i'm hoping for is someone to give me a product I can use to scrub it off without harming the gelcoat

Yes that sounds like overspray. Is there any color to it or clear? I wouldn't put any compound on it as you might make the finish dull. I'd want the dealer to decide.

If it is only on the glass, try a mild polishing compound to remove. Acetone or mineral spirits may also remove it but don't allow any of it to get on the gel coat
