    Lightly hand sand? Airbrush white? Citrustrip?

    Here are 3 things you might try. (No guarantees implied, or expressed)
    Wipe it carefully with some solvent, on a clean rag. Not dripping wet with solvent.
    Or rub it with a Magic Eraser with a little solvent ever so lightly.
    Car polish rubbing compound, for clear coat paints.

    You might have to sand it out, and redo the white and the webbing.

    Try magic eraser and alcohol. Rub very lightly.

    Above are good ideas but..... be super careful though- in my experience you will end up smearing the black speckle. May be better to try no solvent. That overspray is very light. That means that the paint was probably mostly dry droplets when it hit. I bet it comes off with water and ME.

    Start GENTLE. Move to alcohol and solvent only if you really really mean it.

    I would avoid solvents if it is oil or latex based paint.
    If oil the milder rubbing compound may work.
    If latex a little water on a terry cloth towel may work. You could try the compound in a hidden area.
    The main concern I have for you is the overspray in the low points like the grain may be hard to get to so just focus on the high points so you don’t rub through the finish trying to get to the low ones.

    Thanks all!
    I only read the first 2 replies before I did it.
    I used 99% alcohol on a magic eraser and gently swirled to get it off.
    It worked very well! This is latex paint.
    I cleaned up the ME mess with a damp paper towel.

    Some parts where it was heavy you can still see a faint stain from the red, the white is also slightly off there.
    For the most part I got it real good.
    I plan to go over it with an airbrush to touch up the white.

    Here's some before and after:

    400 grit sandpaper is another tool

    Novus 2 might also have worked well, I've used it to remove light overspray.
