Yesterday driving I got to a section of the highway they were painting. A pilot car led us through, but the truck in front of me got too far over and got into wet paint and I was following him and so I did as well. Yes, totally my fault. I feel dumb as it is, so please no ridicule. The entire drivers side of my Jeep got hosed with white road paint. I stopped at a gas station and was able to get most of it off the paint (there's still white paint on the bottom edge of the door and in the hinges) but for the life of me I can't get it off the plastic of the door handle or the fenders. Any ideas for removing the paint?
Odds are its an epoxy type paint. It's applied now with the warmer weather. It's used over a latex because of its durability. It's basically an oil based paint so I think a thinner would be needed. But you can't use that as it will damage what it's on.
Go to a bodyshop supply store use sem bumper stripper for you're fender flares and some slow reducer for the body stuff. Works great I've been the one stuck with cleaning up vehicles like yours at the shop I work at. On a far stretch you can also try a power washer and hold the nozzle close.
