    If the splatter is fairly fresh, Vinegar actually works pretty well. Just keep spraying it to keep it wet over the course of around 30 mins, check it, repeat (in the shade of course) and eventually it should loosen it up. Usually I still had to use a plastic razor blaze (you could try a credit card) and as gently as possible scrape it off. This can take a while though, the last one I did this way was around 3 hours, working on other areas while the vinegar was soaking.

    Lowes/Home depot used to sell Zep Concrete dissolver, but I don't remember seeing it in the stores lately. Not sure if they discontinued it, or if it could be purchased online. I've used this on wheels and wheel wells with success, but never had the chance to try It on the actual body of a car. Didn't work quite as "easily" as I had hoped, but this is concrete your dealing with, not mud!

    You can order Bac Set in large quantity direct. It is an effective product from what I hear. And NOT dangerous one bit.

    I would have used a pressure washer, since concrete is porous and will absorb the water and hopefully loosen up with the pressure and come off...

    Just use common sense here, you cannot use a huge gpm (gallons per minute) pressure washer on this unless you are really careful, so you dont also remove your paint...

    Keep it at an angle and watch what you are doing..

    I had a similar thing happen to my Mustang 3 months ago. Mustang had Blackfire Wet Diamond on it. Used a pressure washer to get the bulk off. Took a while to get it all out of the nooks and crannies.
