    YOu have color matched bumpers right?

    Well...and this might be weird... I've used the creamy white go-jo on my fenders when I got frigin highway road paint on my truck. Slop it on, wait a couple minutes, and rub it off. It might take some elbow grease.

    Acetone, it works on clearcoat as well. I just used on the plastics inside my cab and in my steering wheel because the dealer sprayed some kind if paint on the wheel. Obviously don't use a sponge and let it sit there all day. Just wipe it like you were cleaning a window. Clearcoat is pretty tough.

    You can even use some polish if you've got it handy. If you've got a rotary polisher, it will help make short work of it.
