    Hi,

    I want to remove some paint that is sprayed on to the plastic of my 2003 Ford Explorer Sport trac.

    I got the bottome of the door painted because there were chips from rocks and they got some paint on the plastic. I need to get it removed but can't figure anything out.

    Would using gasoline work or would that ruin the plastic?

    The plastic I'm referring to is in this pic:

    See where the passenger door line is, near the bottom of the fender? That plastic trim is what I'm talking about. Thanks!

    What your going to want to use it clay, clay removes contaminants on your paint as well as plastic, it can also remove tar and other crap that gets on your paint. Its safe and effective, here is an article w/ lots of pics:

    Have you talked to the paint shop? They are responsible for removing it.

    Claying should work if you want to do it yourself.
