Acetone is great stuff. I have a gallon or so around most of the time. It removes wax, grease, tar, bugs, enamel, laquer, and latex paints. It doesn't harm the catylized resin paints on cars. It just can't disolve them or break the bond between layers.
Two words of caution. First, wear rubber gloves (cheap hospital type) when using it cause it drys out your hands something fierce. Second, keep it away from bare plastic cause it will disolve most of them as well. It'* OK on vulcanized rubber, like door seals, but it will craze the surface of plastic trim.
