    Or could it be tar from the street? If thats it you could try WD-40. If it is paint, a buddy of mine used Goof-Off and some bug and tar remover to get spray paint off his car. Good Luck either way, that sucks.

    Did he use Goof-Off or Goo Gone? I've always heard NOT to use Goof-Off on a painted surface. I used Goo Gone to remove adhesive left behind when I peeled the dealer's lettering off of my tailgate, but I'd be afraid to get Goof-Off anywhere near my truck.

    Clay bar will get that stuff off. I had spray paint overspray that was on the paint for a couple months. Clay bar took it right off.

    Plain ol' Goo Gone didn't work as well as the Xtreme stuff, just so you know.
    Wally Mart was the only place I could find it.
