    I have what I believe is road line paint on my car. I bought the car used and it appears to have been there for a while. I have researched a little and for now I am gonna try the WD40 method. Basically supposed to spray and let it soak. I sprayed it about 14 hours ago. I went to Harbor Freight and bought some decal removal scrapers. They claim the scrapers wont damage paint. I will post pics and updates as this moves along.

    Clay bar with a very small amount of dish soap and water in a spray bottle is what I had to use when a clown decided to use epoxy spray paint next to the shop I work at.
    He is lucky I don't take my Challenger to work, but my Jeep Wrangler was only 3 weeks old.
    The problem is that you may be removing any type of paint protection that may be on the car.
    Good Luck.

    When I read your reply 10DYRT I was on my way to get a clay bar. I hit some heavy spots with Goof Off and then followed up with the "Detail Spray" and clay bar. I am satisfied with the results. I bought this car used and it is a mess detail wise, but I will keep pecking at it. Got alot of paint to get out of the fender wells now :( .....

    Agreed!!

    I have had great success using a clay bar to remove overspray and/or road paint.

    About 14 years ago a contractor at the stadium sprayed white primer on the steel structure they were building on a pretty windy day. A BUNCH of us got dusted with the overspray. I had a black '99 Pontiac GTP so the white paint was very visible.

    The contractor offered to clean up everyone's cars .... but when I saw their crew with bath towels and cans of lacquer thinner, mineral spirits, gasoline, and paint remover; I decided I'd tackle the removal myself.
