Angry Help!!!!!!!!!!!! Road Paint On My Truck

I recently ran through some paint from the road striping crew when changing lanes. I have tried bug & tar remover & rubbing compound but neither of the products will penetrate this stuff. You can take your finger nail and chip the paint off of the clearcoat, but that would take a couple of days and finger surgery to remove all of the paint. If anyone has had a similar problem and found a solution that does not damage the factory paint it would be greatly appreciated. My truck just hit 6,000 miles and I am freaking out about the paint splatter all over the side, factory nerf bars and inside the fender wells!

A lot of guys will load their shorts up after reading this, but i've used laquer thinner for little stubborn spots or grime and paint (i'm a painter, often leaning into the bed with specs of wet paint on my shirt....then it gets on the truck) but it never harmed my paint or left any blemishes or dull spots.

Thanks Adam, I will try it on the bottom of a fender to see if it damages the factory paint. If anyone else has a fix please let me know. Thanks again.

The lacquer thinner idea works. Or Goo Gone, which is pretty close to the same thing.

I just made sure my rag wasn't dripping with the laquer thinner. Dampen it and rub softly right on the paint spots....laquer thinner dries very quickly especially when you blow on it. I used it to remove driveway sealer from the front end of my Dodge recently after some jerk hit one of my buckets that I had blocking my driveway off....grrrr

I got a buddy right now, turned his into the state as a claim, they are going to pay to have it cleaned off, his name on here is kylelew, shoot him an email and see what he had to go thru to get it taken care of...

Hey thought I would let people know that the stripping company sent a detail company to my shop to get the paint off and they used "Purple Power" a degreaser. They power washed the truck then sprayed on the purple power and let it set for about 10 to 15 minutes. then power washed it of and the stripping paint came right off. It worked like a champ. They waxed it after they washed off all the solution. You can get it at most auto parts stores. The detailer said make sure not to let it get on polished aluminum it will streak. Chrome, plastic and painted surfaces are safe.

Well that's cool, perhaps it's got some kind of latex in it......I use soap and water to get latex paint off whatever I get it on if it's dry. That greased lighting stuff is really good stuff, and yes you're correct don't use it on aluminum even if it's dilluted.

by the way, greased lightning is the best tire cleaner I've ever used. I spray it on straight or maybe 60/40 and let it soak for about 30 seconds, then spray a little more on and use a light brush to clean them then powerwash them off and they look new when they dry.
