Re: Spray paint removal.

I Googled it. Seems like rubbing compound or clay bar might do it.

Re: Spray paint removal.

Easy... You can try wax and grease remover if it is still fresh... If not get some lacquer thinner and put on a rag and wipe it off.

Lacquer thinner will not affect base coat/clear coat finishes unless excessively used and left on.

Put some on a soft rag, wipe, let dry (flash) a second then repeat if necessary. Wax the area after your done, because it will strip any/all wax.

You can get either is a quart container at the auto parts store or Wally world
