  Pour some of that homebrew wine you've got down in the basement all over the 'glass and stand back!!    :thumb:

stick with sanding a lot of chemicals will make the paint react
you can scuff up existing paint and use almost any kind of base coat clear coat paint

I've found asphalt to be the fastest at removing paint....  Personally T12 at Road America for the right side, and entering the chicane at HPT for the left side.  (Sorry, I can't believe I wasn't beat to it....)

Just used a vibrating sander lots of sandpaper and scraped by hand, turned out pretty good.  Then went w/the cheapest rattle can paint from Farm and Fleet, primer then wet sanded after the first coat or two.  Sprayed a total of 4/5 coats, put on decals then a couple coats of rattle can clear coat.  And guess what.............. it looks great!  Of course if i had perfect plastic i'd pay someone to paint it, but for trashed plastic like i have, it turned out very nice.

Thanks for all the replys.  Yes asphalt is the best recommendation, turn 1 at BHF works good for me!
