    Try oops or goo gone maybe. If that doesnt work acetone my work. I know that none of those will hurt the paint.

    dupli-color prep spray would do a decent job , as well as and paint stripper , but they would probably both eat your clear coat with it

    I had a similar problem on my old truck and I used Goof-Off and some mineral spirits. When you get most of it off use a good wax on it....

    Go to homedepot theres a product called Lift off. Its an environmental friendly product. It works pretty good. It will not damage your paint. Iv used it on several things. I first learned about the product when I used to work for home depot in the paint department. Everything iv used it on has never been damaged in anyway.

    Clay Bar. That should do the trick if it is just overspray.

    Acetone is really some strong stuff, but I'd be concerned about it being too strong. With the paint already cured, you may not have much of a choice though.

    I think I'd try the clay bar first, as that should be the least damaging to any clear coat, etc. Then if that doesn't work, follow up with one of the chemical solutions.

    acetone and paint thinner are some of the worst things you can try to remove over spray with. They will start to eat the finish if you use to much of it.

    I would say the Lift off like I suggested or a Clay bar.
