    Denatured alcohol. It will remove latex paint and not hurt the finish on her car.

    Clay bar. Had it happen to me years back. Just make sure you keep kneading the bar and keep the surface wet where you're working. As long as it's just fine mist all over the place it should work great. Follow up with polish to get any stuff you may have missed, and wax.

    Try sandblasting. It will take off all that nasty paint. Hmmmm, might also remove the 4 Runners paint. Try it out and let me know what happens.

    That being said, I would try the denatured alcohol.

    Damn, that sucks, just go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a gallon of denatured alcohol. You'll have it off in 15 minutes.

    Mr Clean magic eraser amounts to a very fine sandpaper, like 1500 grit. Cannot recommend using it...

    Thanks for all the replys. Just to let everyone know dishsoap and water with a bug sponge works the best on the car paint. In wheel wells I sprayed the denatured alcohol and let it sit for minute then hit it with bug sponge with dish soap and water. All seems to be coming off. If it ever happens to anybody else here is your solution.

    Try bug and tar remover or adhesive remover. I have a black truck and got white paint all over the side. Darn road crew. Both mentioned worked.
