you can use a razors edge to scrape down the run,get it level with the rest of the paint.
wet sand with 1000,1500 then polish out with a swirl mark remover.
becareful not to burn threw!try by hand before you use polisher.
or get someone who is skilled at this stuff,so you dont have to have it painted again. :bigthumbsup

I'd use some Mineral Spirits or some Laquer Thinner and It'll wipe right off, then wash with soap and water right away and wax. I get them both from Wal Mart and they wont hurt the Clearcoat. They also work good to remove Road Tar and Tree Sap.

If you use any paint thinner, I would reccommend the standard "test on an inconspicuous area first". I have used it a lot in woodworking, but never considered putting it on a car. Definitely have soap and water immediately available.

As opposed to a razor, you can call your local pharmacy and order a medical scalpel; it will be sharper, and should have a smaller blade that is less likely to cause damage. Prices and types can vary considerably.

Yea I would try rubbing it off with something. The stock clear coat is a pain to buff back out to get the scratches out of it if you went the route of scraping it off.
