enamel over spray

my car copped enamel overspray at work over the last week,i just found out when i washed it this evening,even the windscreen feels rough to rub your hand over,the wipers sound like they are going over sand paper!how am i going to get this stuff off?i tried a bit of dulux autosolv in one spot on the bonnet and it seemed to work,its the entire roof/bonnet,any flat surface right over the car,,you cant see the colour though it was maroon paint being sprayed,the cars paint is two years old two pack cleared.

If the car is 2 pack then standard thinners should remove it without hurting the paint.

I use thinners on our Commodores to remove bitumen etc. Also used it on an AU Ford. These are all 2 pack from factory.

Try it on an area where it can't be seen.

And find out who did the spraying and give them an account for the clean up.

edit...What about using a Clay Bar.

WHAT? no gravy?

Forgot to mention, DO NOT use Clay Bar on the glass.

I always found soft soapy steel wool pads used lightly,with plenty of water, best for windscreens.
