Restoring Lucite Badges?

Hi guys,
Tried a couple of searches, but couldn't find anything on restoring the lucite badges that you found on 50's cars...front and rear.
I've got a 52 Pontiac Chieftain and all the badge lucite is in usable condition, but the paint is pretty bad and flaking/faded.
Anyone have any ideas on stripping the paint off the rear of the lucite without damaging the plastic?
Thanks for any info.
