You could try aircraft paint remover on a conspicuous spot to see if it removes the paint without hurting the plastic. Personally, I haven't had any luck stripping paint from interior plastic parts, and I ended up replacing them all. (previous owner painted the dash vents and center console white...yuck!).

There isn't much that will remove the paint without any damage to the plastic. Might want to look at a dark color, whether its blue or a deep silver, or black. right now, mine are a dark silver color, and they are barely noticable, but I have black interior.

if you can get it cleaned up, I used the krylon fusion black to redo all my faded plastic. It had turned a greenish black color. If you can get the paint off, clean it with dawn, rinse, spray down with windex with amonia (sp?) wipe down rinse dry, paint. mine came out very good, looks like new.

Okay, I've worked on aircraft for 20 years. What do you mean by "aircraft paint remover"? I've used paint stripper before we allways called it "baby sh#t" cause thats what it looks like. Paint just drops off, but thats because it's a type of acid. That stuff you do not want to used on plastic it will eat right through it. :shock: It will also take a few shades off your skin color too!

It used to be a brand of paint remover. It's kind of a clear gel that makes the paint bubble up and fall off. The problem is that no matter what method you use to strip the paint, you will still be left with discolouration of the plastic. However, I have heard of some people having good luck with bead-blasting...but for how much it will cost you, you're better off buying new parts.
