Paintball paint on my car!!!!!

I washed my car three times with a car scrub brush and power washer. The paintball paint is still stuck on my paintjob and my windows.

What do I use to remove this sticky mess???

I thought that stuff came off with soap/water. If it has dried, may be harder. Call a local paint ball outfit for suggestions.

hey, try a rubbing compound, it will probably remove it. If that doesnt work, try automotive laquer, available at automotive stores, but just ask to make sure it won't hurt your existing paint job, I don't think it does.

Talking Dupont Tar and Bug remover

Not sure if Dupont still makes "Tar and Bug Remover" but it's a mild automotive finish solvent that will cut through the gummy stuff, and should get that paintball paint off. Alternatively, you could also try butter on a soft cloth.

Try some WD-40. Spray affected area, let set, then wipe with soft cloth from outside toward middle to prevent spreading.
