Question any way to get paint off clear bra?

Have a clear bra that was grazed and left some white paint transfer on the fender. The film is not punctured or pulled and the fender isn't dented. Does anybody know of a way to remove the paint transfer from the clear bra? Or do I need to get in touch with the installer and get the piece replaced?

If the white paint was transferred onto the clear bra from the other object (car?) then you'd use the same techniques to remove it that you would if it were on your actual paint. I'd try a light polishing compound or ScratchOut first; move to heavier abrasives if that doesn't work --- rubbing compound, 1500 grit wet sand paper, etc. Of course - you'll have to re-polish once you've removed the paint. If somehow damage has occurred UNDER the clear film -- it will have to come off to affect a repair.
