Really if worse comes to worst take your flares off spray the sem bumper stripper on there let it sit a few minutes then pressure wash it off I assure you this will take the paint off you're flares and not hurt them. You will have to work at the body with some slow reducer. I say slow cuz it takes forever to evaporate so it gives you plenty of time to clean sections of paint off. I wish I could come help you do this I've done plenty of cars this way it has yet to fail me. Wd40 and goof off are a joke to getting that amount of road paint off. If you can't get it take it to a bodyshop let them do it

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?
OP Did you ever get the paint off?

I doubt it. THey spent a lot of time and effort formulating that stuff so it doesn't come off. replace or repaint are the only real options.

Just checking back in. I have not gotten the paint off. I tried hosing it in WD-40 and letting it soak for hours and then pressure washing it and that didn't help. This paint is on really good. It's been suggested to be that vaseline might soften it up if coated on and left on for a day, I might try that. I did not contact the painting crew (I think it was a State crew) because despite the fact that they didn't have the wet paint marked I still feel like it was my own stupidity and I should be responsible for it. I may try that "Sem bumper stripper" recommended- I've never heard of it so I'll have to find a source.

Thanks everyone.

Use the sem stripper on the flares only. Get done slow clear reducer to get the paint off the paint on the Jeep. I assure you this will work I do this for a living. It still takes time but it will come off most surfaces. To find this stuff find a local automotive paint/bodyshop supplier even oreillys should be able to get it for you

I took yellow road paint off of a blue Corolla with lacquer thinner, it was not my car and was not my lacquer thinner so I applied liberally then waxed the area. No damage to the paint when I was done, and she has not come back complaining about paint falling off of her car.

It was only on the painted surface of the car and little splatters. Your flairs are probably trash, or you could always just paint over the paint.
