Redoing tinted tails

Hey guys I decided to redo my tinted tails and make them finally look better than the first go around. I was wondering how to take the paint off of them without ruining the plastic. I've heard paint thinner will mess with the plastic. Any sugestions would great. Thanks!

Re: Redoing tinted tails

sand it off. you will then need to polish the sanding out.

i would try like 1000 grit wet or dry. rather easy to polish out....
