HELP! I've committed the mortal sin!!

I can't believe it. I hit some newly painted road lines and it has left a fricken oversprayon the plastic on the left side bottom and in the left side wheel wells. There is a little on the paint below the door guard trim the length of the left side. Can I use bug/tar remover? Can I clay? I have a good coat of wax on, but the plastic will be a bear to clean. Any suggestions would be helpful! I am a MORON!!!!!!!

I had a similar incident and I ended up using Bug&Tar removal. Glad everything is ok.

I had my car spray-painted once (the whole neighborhood did), and I used clay bar, worked very well. You need to do it quick though, before the paint completely dries.
