Default Need Some Suggestions

New member here!

I need some suggestions/recommendations for clear bra install and over spray removal in the Denver area. If you have any recommendations, please pm the name of the place to me.

I had what was supposed to be a reputable installer perform an absolute hack job on my clear bra install and oversprayed the entire right side of my truck bed with bed liner. This was done to a brand new 2013 Ram 1500 Sport. When I showed the problems to the installer, he apparently didn't like a customer pointing out problems with his work, screamed obscenities at me, and kicked me out of his shop (I'm not making this up).

Needless to say, I'd like to have it fixed. Any recommendations for a clear bra installer and a detail shop to remove the overspray are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Acetone will not affect the clear coat of your truck, you can use it to clean off over spray, use small amounts on a rag and don't leave it on the paint, wipe off and turn the rag over and keep doing this till all your over spray is gone, now that being said the only thing to keep in mind now is it will also remove any protection you have on your truck so now you should clay and wax the area affected. Hope this helps

I had my Ram vandalized with spray paint
I called a auto body shop & he told me to try fingernail polish remover (acetone) on a small area & get back to him.
It was a Saturday & the shop was closed, it was very warm day & i was afraid that the paint would cure out & never come off. He told me to meet him at his shop, he was not there, but 2 of his guys were there swilling beer & making BBQ.
I offered them cash & one of the guys used acetone, then washed the area with soap & water, then rinsed the hell out of it,
Then he used Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer all over the area, applied with Microfiber Towels
Then he used 2 or 3 different liquid paste like products after that
he used different pads on his buffer for each product

My Ram came out close to a showroom shine

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately there is pending legal action with the installer for damaging my truck. I'm trying to find a good detailer or autobody shop to remove it so I can get an estimate (and repaired) for court purposes. The same for the clear bra.
