    Zip-strip?

    Use a new can of Krylon?

    Beat the guy who painted it?

    What was it painted with? Brush or roller?

    I have never tried to do this beyond putting the pieces in my blast cabinet and........."Blasting" them. Then off to AllenM's for a re-color.

    Lacquer thinner will typically remove spray paint pretty easily, but you do have to watch out for what is under the paint, especially if there is any plastic. The Acetone in the thinner (one of the various solvents in it) will dissolve plastics such as ABS.

    A lot of coatings do not respond well to high solvents. They will ghost. Loose color and be ruined.

    What about brake fluid? Dot 3? Any suggestion for removing off the plastic as well?

    Soak in acetone for 5 to 10 minutes at a time.

    Shouldn't hurt good plastics.

    Won't do well with bakelite stuff.

    Stay safe,
