Solar panel in a fog

Hello everyone. After getting help with a persistent painting problem on a previous thread, I spray painted the back end of my 2004 Allegro Bay. The paint job turned out great. However I wound up with a very light haze, or fog, on my roof solar panel. Does anyone have any suggestions for removing the over spray without harming the surface of the solar panel?

If the surface of the solar panel is glass, then you can use lacquer thinner to remove the paint. If it is plexiglass or plastic, then you can use mineral spirits paint thinner or Goo Gone. Neither one of those will harm plastic. Lacquer thinner won't harm some polycarbonates and plastics, but it will melt the surface of some types.

Hopefully it's a light mist that never really bonded since it had lots of travel time from the nozzle. If glass you can probably LIGHTLY run a razor over the surface and it'll all pop off

If it is glass - steel wool works very nicely.

Painters clay will remove it. Megarie's sells it in the car polish and cleaners section at AutoZone O'Reillys or PEP Boys. You roll it on the surface and it removes the paint over spray with no chemicals. Automotive paint and body shops use it. It works very well.
