    Removing paint off plastic?

    Is there an easy way to remove paint off of a set of fenders that have been painted?

    Tons of ways! You can scrape a razor blade around them and then wet sand the whole fender after, and I'm sure there are chemical options as well. The thing with using chemicals though is you have to concern yourself with the effect the chemicals will have on the plastics themselves and make sure they don't get damaged. Brake fluid removes paint but I don't know if it will have any effect on your plastics or not.

    Good ideas fabiodriven, if the paint is peeling at all you may have luck with a pressure washer.
