How do you get overspray off rubber trim without dulling the finish of the trim?
A friend of mine has overspray on his Grandprix and was able to remove the overspray from the body panels and glass with claybar. He tried it on a small part of the trim and it took the glossy finish off the rubber trim around the widows.

If it is the hard plastic trim I am thinking about it should not be too difficult to remove. It would also depend on the overspray material itself.

Things that come to mind...
(test in an inconspicuous area - use at own risk) :D

Try with a towel or Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

* Goo Gone.
* Isopropyl alcohol.
* An all-purpose cleaner.
* WD-40.
* 3M Adhesive Remover.
* Mineral Spirits.
* Kerosene.

* Plastic razor blade.
