Default Yellow Road Paint Removal???

Hi you fine people who always help me!

This idiot Ram driver got too close to a truck that was painting yellow stripes on the road in front of me. As a result, I have yellow road paint (lots) all over my mud flaps, side steps, wheel wells...get the picture?

What do I use to remove it? It's that bright, grainy yellow; don't know what kind of paint they use.

Please help! My beautiful Ram is crying.

Thanks.

Any good paint remover will work. Don't try to rub it off. Holler at a body shop near you for specific info on what they use.

I've used a straight paint thinner when I've done this. Didn't hurt the paint or clearcoat at all.

Just take your vehicle to the government entity that services that particular road
it is either the city/town, county, or state

just call each one until you find who maintains that stretch of road, they will give you the Claims office phone number & they will make arrangements to have a body shop clean it for FREE

the Traffic Paint is usually recycled paint with glass beads in it

get it cleaned ASAP, it is quick drying paint
