    Get yourself a good clay bar. Something like Dodo Juice Purposeful Purple should give it the go over: http://www.dodojuice-shop.co.uk/?gcl...FZ0U4wod2Ca5EA

    If the clay bar doesn't work, try taking it to a bodyshop and ask them to mop the panels with the overspray...

    mopping is messy. clay WILL remove it if a aggressive one is used. once clayed you will need to polish out some slight marring with some SRP then top off with wax.
