What's the best thing to use to remove spraypaint from my chrome grille?

Anyone have a good experience with turpentine or any other chemical?

I will tell you if you tell us how spray paint got on your grill

000 Steel Wool is safest. Some of the graffiti chemicals are fast but a little to strong (and close) to body paint could be a bad deal.

I agree that steel wool is your best and safest bet. I'd try 0000 first, and move to 000 if the 4-ought doesn't work.

You can try Lacquer thinner if that doesent work then on to the big gun MEK (methyl ethyl ketone). Both of these a nasty especially MEK. Gloves & respairator, use sparringly(a little dab will do ya) outdoors, Don't get it in/on anything else.
