like Bob said it should have been taped. if it is dust it should wash off. try wax and grease remover first. if that doesn't work and the paint is cured (with harderner) i mix a 9:1 of reducer (9 reducer 1wax remover) and wax and grease remover and wipe down what i can reach (door jambs ect). if it is just overspray (not build-up) it comes off pretty easy. if it has any millage that is another story. for areas i can't reach i spray this mixture (9 parts wax/grease remover 1 part reducer) on the affected areas and power wash. first try wax and grease remover alone. if that does not do the trick try the 9:1 mix. if the paint is catylized/cured properly the 9:1 mix will not hurt the paint. if the reducer mix does not work (it should) i then mix 9 parts grease remover i part thinners. many will frown on this method (thinners/reducer) but i have used this procedure for many years without any trouble (if the paing is cured). again, if there is a build-up (as opposed to overspray) on the jambs this will be difficult to remove. it looks like (in the pic) they did a beautifull job. hope this helps. good luck.

poncho62 Just about any rubbing compound should take the dust overspray off.....getting into the nooks and crannies will be a pain though.

baddbob Nice looking car. Whoever you paid to paint the exterior should be responsible for removing the overspray, if they would have masked it properly it wouldn't be there...
Take the car back to them and tell them to learn how to mask. Bob

adtkart If it is just overspray, you might try a clay bar.

removing overspray underhood after paint job

I just had the exterior of my car painted, before I had it painted I took it apart and did the jams and the inner fenders and rad support in the same coloer the outside is painted. now that it is finished does anyone have any tips for removing the paint "dust" from all the previously painted parts? Is there anything I can do short of wet sanding and buffing? How do I get the tight areas that the buffer won't fit into cleaned?
