Here is advice: * Strong paint thinner will after a few applications finally clear it * If you can afford it (and the price is coming down), a pressure washer will work wonders on paint. Once you own one you'll find all kinds of uses for it. * The pressure washer is great advice. I have a pressure washer and used it to remove 30 year old paint off of brick. * Solvents, even carburetor cleaners, are more effective with dry rags to absorb the paint residue. Be sure to dispose of the rags safely or contain them properly for future use. * I have been soaking an area with some red oil based over spray with paint thinner (for approx 1 min) and then going over it with the pressure washer with limited success so far. 1550 PSI pressure washer $100 Home Depot. or to save yourself some $. Get a quart of paint stripper and wash it off with a garden hose. paint thinner will do it but a stripper is a higher concentrate and theres no sense buying a pressure washer if you dont' need it.
