Overspray on B pillar removal

Hey Guys, how can I get rid of this over spray? Body shop didn't do a great job and I went back twice already. I tried soap, rubbing compound, Simple Green, and my finger nails trying to scrap the paint off. Should I go with a clay bar or something more aggressive? There's also some on my side skirts too. What would you recommend for that?

Let us know how it evolves, because dot4 fluid is notorious for eating through paint. Not sure your black paint will survive it...

Oh wow, thanks for the heads up. I'll wipe it down more with some soap and water. Seems ok right now. It didn't see like any paint was coming off with the q tip.
