Try fine steel wool on overspray (#0000) using soapy water as a lubricant. It could still scratch though.

In order to do a wrap, the vehicle to be wrapped has to be a known pattern. Cargo vans and other typical commercial vehicles are common. I doubt any one has programmed a pattern for a VFR. [emoji3]
