Remove Spray Paint Over Spray on Vehicle

The grill and bumper where sun faded and rusty on my pickup. Purchased Trim and Bumper spray paint to restore my grill and bumper. I painted the grill while it was still on the truck. I masked off the hood with painters tape and paint paper. The paint paper was too thin and I got some black specks from the spray paint on my hood. What's the best way to remove the paint without damaging the clear coat?

    I actually have a solution for my own problem. Just wanted to post a fix for anyone else who is interested. I ended up using a rag and WD-40 and it came right off. Hope this helps!

Could try grim and wax remover/prep for auto bodies. Auto stores have it. Then polish/ wax the spot.

I had my front bumper painted and now my ac only blows warm air and the ac compressor will not kick on.

The A/C condenser is mounted right behind the bumper so, unless the painter covered the condenser or removed the bumper before spraying it, he painted the condenser as well. This is bad because the condenser must have air flow through it in order for the A/C to work properly. Try to have a look at the condenser, it looks like a smaller radiator mounted in front of the radiator and behind the grill / bumper. If it is painted, go back to the paint shop and demand it to be replaced. Also, have the radiator checked to be sure it isn't painted because that'll run into engine overheating issues.

What soluntion is v best for my 2000 jeep grand cherokee lorado...i'm having problems with the low door panels as far dicoloring

a great fix for this problem is to take the Jeep to a ' Good ' auto paint shop and have them prep and paint the panels with a good quality anti-fade paint. make sure the paint shop warranties their work against chips and flaking. make sure they are going to use a good quality paint and primer.
this should only cost about 150.00 to 200.00 dollars at a good paint shop, with a turn around time of about 1 1/2 days.
now if you want to avoid that cost -- you can go down to your local auto parts store and buy a spray paint that works on plastics--- you will need to prep,primer and spray the panels following the instructions on the can -- the spray paint that they make these days come in many shades and hold up very well to the weather and sun,,just mask off the Jeep very well so you don't get over spray on the rest of the vehicle. make sure you keep one of the empty spray cans or a half full can around for future color match application. the cost of the spray paint can vary on quality and maker, usually around 8.00 to 16.00 dollars per can,, and primer and other supplies should run you around 30.00 more dollars. call around and shop around and ask lots of questions --- stop buy your local auto paint shop and ask them for a free estimate,, you might find a place that will do it even cheaper then I had quoted above (?).
good luck,

Hole in front bumper of Infiniti I30 2001

Sure. Use bondo. Do you have a paint sprayer?

Most composite bumpers have the paint in the composite, but I dont' know why, at least for a coupe or three years, the bumper wouldn't hold paint sprayed on.
