chopper1 Try using WD-40. I once drove over yellow street line paint that someone had dumped on the street. Had it on the lower front fender, rocker and rear quarter. A lot of it
the WD-40 worked but it was a lot of work. That paint is very think.
If you have latex splatters it should come off more easily.

latex paint or not

I am hoping it is latex paint...but I really can't tell. Since it did come off in the tiny spots, and when I touched one of the bigger spots it was still a little fresh in the middle part and the texture felt latex-like.

would acetone also work? thank you.

35WINDOW Arge,

I am wondering if this is Latex based or not? Apparently you think it is (using Water)-there will be other ideas, but I wonder what about a product like Goof-off-some people don't think it works, but in certain situations it has for me-

WD-40, Bug and Tar Remover and Rubbing Alcohol also comes to mind-if it's not Latex based, try some Laquer Thinner-

How to remove paint from the car's exterior

To my surprise as I was leaving the office, I found my car splattered on the exterior with white paint on the door and parts of the front of the car.

I tried taking it off with water and soap but did not work. It appears like someone tripped and accidentally splattered paint on my car and the sidewalk , but they left no note.

Is there a way to remove it without harming the car's surface? I tried with my fingernail and the tiny ones came off but not the big ones. HELP PLEASE!!
