    I posted this same thing under 2nd gen, but didn't get much feedback. My truck got some overspray on it at work a few weeks ago. The paint company sent some people to get the paint off. The paint came off great everwhere except my black plastic fender flares and my black plastic bed cover. The lady doing the removal said she didn't have antthing to put on it. They used a claybar on the rest of the truck. Does anyone know how I can remove the paint from the plastic? here is a pic of my truck before the paint.[​IMG]

    If it absolutely won't come off without damaging it, you could tape off your paint around it and paint it with a satin black paint.

    They have some made for plastic (Fusion). I posted on here about doing the same thing with my bed, because I bought my truck used and there were tons of white spots (I think from salt water) that would not come out at all. I cleaned the bed really well, and then spray painted it with Rustoleum all surface paint (said on the can good for plastic) and it looks like new again.

    Good luck!

    I have used mineral spirits, on a rag, to remove it on other vehicles. Use gloves, it strips the oil off your skin.
    Test in a hidden place first. I haven't had to do it on a tacoma yet.
