try pulling the blade towards you, not scraping with it.

Also, polishing or rubbing compounds perhaps after sanding if you go that route.

same priciple of removing paint from a pane of glass. Push the business end of a single sided razorblade along the surface. The blade will ride the original paint surface and cut off any bump in its way. Try it on your windshield, scraping off bugs and stuff to get the hang of it. Just make sure your blade is new, and change often.

If you had a decent finish before the overspray, denatured alcohol might do the trick for you. We used the to get a number of things off cars when I worked at a car wash many years ago..
