    When the shop sprayed the front bumper on my car they got paint all over my radiator and the surrounding area. They also got a little bit of red paint (color of my car) on my black mirrors and on my white rims. What would be the best way to remove the paint?

    Make the body shop do it, they should have cleaned all that crap up before you picked up the car.

    I'll be going up there in a couple of weeks again, but wanted to clean it up asap since the shop is a bit of a drive. So there's no way to get this crap off? :(

    paint thinner, reducer (just like thinner but not as strong, the stuff they put to thin paint out when spraying), or rubbing alcohol.. just be careful. dont do too much rubbing if it doesnt come off. just use a paper towel or those strong blue towels and press on it for 10-20 seconds, release, and rub a little.

    DUDE....I'd wait.
    You don't know what paint they used or if it's a catalyst or was baked in an oven.

    Just wait. You might be voiding ANY warranty if YOU mess with it.

    Werd.

    LEt the shop take care of it.
    Seriously, that is completely bullshit.
    ANd if the shop is certified with iCAR or some other autobody affiliation, i would call that body up, and complain.

    I mean seriously, paint on the Rad, and overspray on your wheels, and mirrors and trim....i wouldent even put up with that sort of crap from Macco.
