Roads are so hot the road paint is slinging!

My friend's wife's car has what looks to be either fresh white road marker paint from the highway or just it was so hot it was sticking to people's tires.

Anyways there are tiny white dots of paint all over the hood of her car.

He was asking what's the best method to remove it. I was not sure if this is considered "over spray" or not. My real concern is I do not know what it is, so I wanted some suggestions to remove it with out damaging the clear coat.

Any suggestions to remove this or even links would be great, the car is a 2013 malibu with less then 100km on the car and 50 of those km were gained to put up Dave's 2010 Camaro from the shop!

Thanks in advance.

Clay is your first option and will probably take care of it.

Next would be a light polish.

Always start with the least abrasive method(Clay in this case) and work into the more abrasive methods only if necessary.

Thanks!

Yep, clay first. If you get it while it's still fairly fresh, you will have good luck with clay.

If not, then it's time to break out some polish to take care of it.

Getting it while it's fresh is the key. If you wait until it cures, it will be hard to get off.
