removing paint off car

I got paint all over my car, I must of drove over it and it got all on the fender wells and all on both sides of the car. I went to a car wash, but it doesn't come off with the high pressure water. I also tryed cleaning it off with a rag, but it makes it worst.

What kind I use ? Is there something I can buy to remove it with out messing up my clear coat ?

Thanks

It depends on what kind of paint it is as to what, if anything will take it off. More than likey it can be color sanded and buffed out if there is enough clear on the car. This is especially true if it is the paint used to make lines in the road. That stuff can be color-sanded and buffed off, but if it is too thick, you'll end up burning through the paint. Trust me, I know cuz I run a paint and body shop in Flower Mound, TX

Buy a rubbing compound from a paint store, I.E. PPG or 3m brand, and try to rub it off, then try to buff it off. I wouldn't colorsand it until I absolutley had to but as kennybo said thats usually what it takes.

Go to Wal-Mart and get some paint thinner.The kind I get it made by Kleen strip. It wont strip you paint off unless you have a single stage paint job or a crappy paint job. If that doesn't work, sand and buff. I have only had to do that to one car, but it came out fine. Again, thats if you have a base/clear paint job and its in good shape. S/S may get sanded through.

3M rubbing compound worked great for me.

Rubbing compound! But dont rub it in to much or you might mess up the clearcoat.

All I need is a LITTLE BLACK COUPE!
