Had a shop repaint my Silverado roof. How do I remove paint/overspray from under side of weather strips over extra-cab doors?

Try some rubbing compound,and a clean towel,and start rubbing. Maybe some 000 steel wool, if that does't work, take it back to the shop that painted it to begin with

Acetone is good for that. Be careful you don't touch the paint on the car.

Lacquer thinner on a rag should do it. It shouldn’t affect the older paint, but don’t get it on the fresh paint and still be careful not to touch the old paint either.

Friends don’t let friends drive Fords.
