I would agree with the others, I'm no expert but I had some scratches from a hood scoop I removed, it was going to cost me 800 for a repainting of the hood, so with nothing to loose I got a 3M scratch repair kit from crapy tire and wow worked great it included the rubbing compound,polish and two foam pads one for each chemical that mount on a drill, allso a piece of 3000 grit sponge sand paper.
you hopefully only need the rubbing compound and the pad, maybe check a local body shop supply place for some materials, as well some free advice.
Man That kit worked like magic.
Good luck.

I do detailing for a living so im going to say use a clay bar with plenty of lube.. go to your local autozone or something like that and pick up a clay bar cleaning set. wash vehicle first then clay in small sections and wash again then you want to put some wax on it. paint will feel and look like new when youre done...

There's a product called "Clean Ease" auto body shops use it to clean off over spray. It works very well.

^^^ Best advice! I work as a detailer also. We have a body guy that always leaves overspray on everything he works on :(. Rubbing compound and elbow grease can leave scratches in the red paint if a heavier compound or if you rub too hard.
