Overspray on Lexan

I am painting my daughters 1st car..Tamiaya blazing star..and got overspray on the outside of the lexan body. It's been 15 years since I painted one of these. Ithought there was a trick to removing overspray from the outside(shiny/smooth side) of the body. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks

paint remover

The best thing I have used is reagular brake fluid for full sized cars. Takes it right off then wash the residue off with soap and water. Use a soft cloth and put a dab of brake fluid on it to control where it goes. It will take the paint off of real cars too.

Cheers,
Chris

NON acetone fingernail polish remover, works everytime. Just be sure you use NON ACETONE.

LOL well you dont leave it on that long, the fat in the mayo emulsifies the paint, forgot to tell ya it only works on Parma faskolor or other acrylic based paint

lighter fluid does the trick also, for some paints, it removes sharpie marker very well.

Later,

I bet the low-fat mayo wouldn't work then. Yet another reason not to diet.

Your right nail polish and paper towel doesnt work, But NON ACETONE nail polish remover DOES work on acrylic and laquer paints, and use a cloth not papertowel

thats why I specified real hellmans mayo! Kraft, mircacle whip and the like dont work, and you need to let it set a bit too

I never liked mayo, but now I guess I have a reason to keep some around.
