anyone have any ideas on how to remove spraypaint overspray? The daughter was doing a school project and got some overspray on the hood. Thanks

Weird but true, depending on how much, how thick and how baked on by the sun. some good ole grease off the side of your face or nose will work. Used to do it all the time when I painted my stock car.

depending on how long the paint has been on there, WD-40 works for taking off overspray, even after it has dried. a guy showed me this winter at work, never saw it before but it worked really good.
