From now on I'm gonna move the car out and have a makeshift booth. I have used thinner before to remove Berliner too. It small quantities of overspray. I guess I was lucky it was only a few ody panels, over wise it may have come out worse.

Thanks for the help guys
Glad I could help.

Say that again so duke can understand.... Lol... Lacquer thinner takes off uncured powder on painted surfaces. Lacquer thinner is not like mek or acetone. Just a bit stronger than Denatured alcohol

Maybe on an older paint job but hell if you try that on something that's been painted in the past 6 months you may have a problem on your hands.

My buddy's give me shit for putting a car cover over my truck in my garage. This is why I do it. Or just get it out of there when spraying. You want to work on a booth setup that filters well and ejects the output outside. Before I ejected powder outside I had it going in a water bucket. Worked ok but when spraying for a while you would notice powder everywhere in the garage. Now I can spray for hours and there isn't a bit of powder floating around.
