Removing Spray Epoxy Paint from motorcycle

My grandson dropped a can of spray epoxy paint and it went all over my 2008 Ultra Classic Harley! I really would like to know if there is anyway I can get it off with repainting the whole thing?? It went everywhere even on the windshield. Sure would appreciate the help!
Thanks, Johnnie

It sounds like maybe it hadn't been activated yet, as in just the can of Epoxy fell?

If thats the case, some lacquer thinners on a rag should clean most everything up okay. Might just need to polish the chrome, and maybe buff the paint a little bit afterwards.

"can of spray epoxy paint"

Do you mean a rattle can type paint?
If that's what you mean, then that's not a true epoxy and might be able to be removed with a real mild solvent like mineral spirits. If not that, then denatured alcohol.

Milo,
Interesting info, now on a place like this people will post stuff just to screw other people up but you, I know you know what you are doing.
This is not a joke, your serious, if you are, I have got to test.

Your serious?

Thanks, great info, I had no idea, my ignorance must be because of my young age and just not as experience as you old folks.

Great info!

The newer stuff for self cleaning ovens is milder than the old kind that would burn flesh right away.. the blue can has a fresh lemon scent too .. I have used this trick on spanking new BMW bikes right there on the dealers show room floor while onlookers cringe and look away but yes it will lift a variety of over sprays and is certainly worth a try..

Factory or quality tight paint only now

I have to wonder how do people find this stuff out, just thought that they would give it a try? who would think oven cleaner. I have been in the business for a lot of years and have never heard of this. thanks for the tip.

I work days for a large truck dealership and that is what we use to remove lettering and pin striping on trade in trucks before we put them on the used lot.

Spray can????? epoxy????? Theres no such thing....but reducer or lacquer thinner will take about any uncatalyzed paint material off even catalized paint (sometimes) ,if its done in time (24hrs)...without removing the factory paint...
I dont have any EZ off at my shop ,its a body shop not a bakery...

I would not chance lacquer thinner on this unless you could try it on something inconspicuous first. It's just too strong of a solvent. I wouldn't take a chance with reducer either.

always try the reducer first, but cured urathane is pretty tough stuff.being that its a Harley gas tank it would be that paint BC/CC and hold up to lacquer thinner...

lacquer thinner is not a cleaning solvent. if you use wash thinner you have no idea of what it is. drys too fast , can leave an acidic film on it , melts contaminates into the surface , the list goes on .
