a good spray can paint remover...

I painted my Nova kick panels about 20 years ago with Black spray can. Now, what's an effective paint remover for this?

Off vinyl? I know of nothing that will work without destroying the vinyl.

Lacquer thinner on a rag should wipe it right off.

Right^^^ DON'T soak it. Just clean it off with a damp rag or paper towel.

Jassco has a very good spray can stripper, you can get it at Lowes.

Not sure if it's vinyl or just plastic. It's the hard plastic ones.

Lacquer thinner as stated and used as stated. There are also enviromental friendly strippers that come in a tub that may work. Also you can try an enamel paint reducer as it's not as "hot" as lacquer thinner.

WHOA THERE! DO NOT use Jassco, I don't think DBM knew they were plastic, DO NOT put a paint stripper on there! Even lacquer thinner will VERY likely damage the plastic.

Why do you need to remove it?

If you use ANYTHING do a test on the back side, but damn with the texture something like that usually has, this is a tough one.

Use Easyoff oven cleaner, it will not harm the vinyl or plastic. I would test the back of the panel just to be sure. I’ve also heard about using Wesley’s (sp?) Blechewhyte,Simply Green and Pinesol. You will need to soak the parts for a while and scrub with a brush any residue that won’t come off.

The original plastic color is blue. I want to restore as close as possible. So something strong melts the plastic?

So, why can't you just spray the blue you want over what is there?
