Need Help With Removing Yellow Road Paint

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this but I am in need of help. I had driven through some new road construction and the guys painting I guess didn't feel the need to post that the paint was fresh. I have it down both quarter panels and all over my nerf bars. Any help would be greatly appreciated to get this removed. Thanks

That sucks my truck before and my current truck fell victim to road paint white and yellow! I tried bug remover and a few others nothing helped you just need to get the wax out start rubbing with your finger nails though the wax rag it comes off but takes time i still have it on a mirror really dont come off plastic at all! good luck!

A clay bar may help. No promises, but it'd be worth a shot

for the nerf bars, i got this stuff from oriellys called "air plane stripper" should take the paint off, no promises it wont mess up nerf bar though

for the paint, if it were me id take to body shop or detailing place and have it done right, id hate to mess up more just trying to fix

call DOT or whoever that paint crew worked for and give them a few words, wont help but it make u feel better

Try a product called GOOF OFF. I've used it to remove graffiti and it worked pretty good. I would try it in an inconspicuous place first.

goof off will work but you have to be extreamly careful. you can rub thru the clear coat easily. a fingernail works but is time consuming, I agree take it to a shop and see what it will take to get it done right.

I would go after the city or whoever did the painting. That stuff is supposed to dry quick enough to not transfer to vehicles. A friend of mine hit some on a curve with his motor cycle and put him and his girlfriend in the hospital for two months. They both went after the city for is and he received $100,000 dollars and a new bike and she got $60,000. This all because the painted area was not closed off or warning signs displayed. Now you were not injured but time and money are required to get the paint off your rig. If it were me I would at least complain to whoever you need to in the area and see what comes out of it.

I work at a detail shop, try using some lacquer thinner (put it on a rag and use it lightly) it should loosen up the paint and help wipe it off. don't let the thinner or rag sit on the paint for a long time or it could hurt your paint. for the nerf bars. if they are chrome some very fine #0000 steel wool will help take the paint off without harming the chrome. if they're painted try the thinner. if they are plastic, you might be screwed as I haven't found anything really to get paint off plastic without discoloring the plastic.

I would certainly call that city/road commission and tell them about it, i've had a few cases where the county came to my shop and paid for such cases. Someone else mentioned clay bar. that might work if the paint isn't too thick.

Thanks to all that responded I will try the clay bar first and go from there. Let you know what happens.
