Yes, spray can.

What kind of overspray?
I spray painted the whole stripe on the hood with black paint and found that mineral spirits took it off without damaging the blue paint underneath; however, it took a lot of rubbing. One thing that worked better that I tried was another remover that I have. It's a common remover but I can't remember what it's called. I'll let you know what it was when I get a chance to look at the container.

Shaving (on a car) looks great when it's done, but honestly, it's a pain in the a$$. lol. Just when I think I'm almost done, there's a blemish or I bust through the paint. I need to respray everything with clear coat one more time to get everything flat, but here's how it looks now. Unfortunately, it's probably going to look like this for a while because this week is looking busy.
