Depending where overspray is ,lets say its on a wingmirror you cold put wing mirror cover over, if the plastic is textured, you can bet the overspray will be in the pores of plastic, if high adhesion tape dosent work,might be best,use a dye like forever black, to hide.If its on windsceen,i would use a window scraper, not compound,as it could cause problems with windscreen wipers.Theres a book in this subject, if its on a door handle, clay bar,or otherwise a carbon Steele blade, with light pressure.More to follow.
