    Wheel cleaner acid says on it in very big writing "do not use on paintwork as it will remove the paint" (in their own words)

    That'll work.

    Or brake fluid.

    Harsh but works a treat.

    Will automotive nitromorse not work? I used it on plastics once and it didn't seem to damage it in anyway.. But it would be worth looking into it before you go chucking it on...

    Trust me, I speak from experience, brake fluid does remove paint, regardless of laquer or not - Leave it on longer.

    To be fair, I had DOT4 spill on my paint, not DOT3.
