Rubbing/polishing compound may be best. I'd hesitate to use any type of chemical stripper.

Bug and tar remover. We had red paint on our white Bonnie'* bumper from someone else'* car who must have scraped us in a parking lot...it took it right off (with a little elbow grease of course). Just follow the directions on the bottle; it works wonders.
