Its pretty simple, as long as you painted it with Lexan Style paint.

-Buy some DOT3 brake fluid,

-Grab a container large enough to hold your body, and round up some paper towels.
(Suggested by another forum the paper towels works the best).

-Place the body in the container and pour some brake fluid in to coat the body.
-Next wad up a couple paper towels, soak them in the fluid, and place them in the body so that they contact most of the painted surfaces.

-Pour a little more brake fluid in for good measure, and go watch the Speed Channel for 15-20min.

-When you get back, the paint should be soft enough to scrape away with the paper towel.

-Rinse it every now and then with warm water to clean the loose paint away, and resoak the body with brake fluid to continue.

-The results are surprising, and the body didn't cloud up.

Over the years I've heard of people doing this but never knew if it really worked. Thanks for the info.
