I stripped my old shitty badges off and put my new 2nd gen badges over it. You can barely see the paint now.

A clay bar and a lot of patients works best for getting spray paint off. Be sure to keep your working surface well lubricated.

Ive actually dulled a razorblade and used it to remove road striping paint. When I detailed cars but I wouldnt do it with my truck. To dull the razorblade just hit it on the concrete sharp side down.

There is a product called TSW (This Stuff Works) Plasti-Master. It will take it right off and not hurt your paint. They do a demo on an actual car to sell it. I work for Sherwin-Williams and my store keeps it in stock. Don't know if your local store would or not. It's pricey but works everytime. It is made specifically to get off graffiti.

i decal our trucks at work and ive learned that without patience, you will F up your paint!! as for all the other methods i will have to try some, but i use lacur thinner and a buffer. razor blades work wonders if you have a steady hand.

i do professional detailing and i normally spray some water on the area, lighty wipe with paint thiner ( no pressure on it), then wax over it. or if you not comfortable with that, then wet the area and clay bar it and then re-wax it.
