Hi Bradass-

Isn't naptha some kind of thinner/solvent chemical? I would rinse it from the painted bodywork immediately. Use something gentle like olive oil that you would use for ordinary cooking. Cooking oils works like a charm.

Thanks for the cooking oil tip. I never knew that.... but at this point, I'm afraid to take anything else off...
