How to remove yellow road paint from car?

Hey a friend of mine in a black prelude ran over a freshly painted yellow line in the road and got yellow mist on the side of his car. Whats the best thing to use to remove it without harming the factory black paint?

some polishes or waxes should take it right off (i think the zaino and meguairs shuold) ... a clay bar will probably work too. OR you can try buffing it out... a friend of mine had FAG and QUEER spray painted all over his car (silver car, red spray paint) and some extensive buffing not only got the paint off but got it looking brand new

yea you don't even understand how pissed him and basically all his friends were, including myself. He didn't find out who it was but there was talk that it was this one kid who's done some pretty dickish shit to the kid before, so my friend just walked up and hosed the kid hah. He beat the shit out of him - it was pretty funny, too bad itw asn't the kid tho- it would have made it more worth the while.

Laquer thinner, with a microfiber rag. make sure, to get it all off and let it dry. Then apply a nice coat of wax.

before buying anything most people have a can of WD-40 laying around try that. if that doesn't work well enough for you i used 3M adhesive remover also and that worked better.

DO NOT USE THINNER. . . you wil ruin your paint.

Start with a clay bar. Body shops use this all the time for removal of overspray. And this is safe for your original paint.

If the bar does not work you will need an aggressive compound. 3M offers some rubbing compounds. These contain abrasives which remove layers of clear coat or paint, but will remove the yellow. Some polishes contain alot of abrasiveness to, and might to the trick. Start with the clay bar, as it will not harm your paint

yeah-its a good idea to first try the least abrasive thing-then get a little more aggressive-imo, i would try polish first, then claybar, then maybe an orbital machine w/compound-i dont think that you will have to resort to that though-polish and claybar should do the trick.
