    I drove through wet road paint this morning on my way to work. None of it got on the paint, just a TON of speckles inside the wheel wells and all over the front and rear molded mud guards. What can I do to get all this shit off of the bottom of my car!

    You are probably just going to have to pick at most of it. You can also try some paint thinner, but that road paint is super tough and can be a real bitch to remove. You might want to call the highway department in your area and ask them-since they put down the paint, they may know of a product specifically designed to remove it.

    Spray undercoat or black spray paint in you wheel wells. Prep it first though.
