    oh God!!!!!

    Is it fresh sap? or has it hardened?

    mineral spirits, acetone free nail polish remover...


    I would start with IPOH, diluted to about 45% strength. Use a pipette and cotton swaps. The more you work it, the harder it's gonna be.

    i had this happen to me, you have two options. 3m makes a adhesive remover that will take it off with a lot of elbow grease and not ruin your paint or you can buff it off with course compound. remember not to use harsh solvents or you will visit the painter.
