    It think clay will remove the overspray.

    A quick wipe over and it'll be gone, literally take about ten seconds and won't touch your paint.

    I'm with Disco Stu on this (not in gay way ).

    Nail varnish remover is strong enough to remove the fresh over spray but weak enough not to damage the original paint.

    Soak a cloth in the nail varnish remover and have another wet cloth to hand, wipe over the over spray and then immediately with the wet one. A coat of some sort of polish and wax to lock the paint and it should be done
