    Stripping paint from the body panels?

    Has anyone got experience with stripping the paint off of the plastic body panels?

    I'm thinking it would be inadvisable to use something like aircraft remover or even regular old paint stripper due to the possibility of it eating into the plastic panels.

    How would one go about stripping the paint without damaging the panels?

    Sand it down. Usually sanding down to the factory primer is all you need to do unless the primer is gone.
