Default how to remove paint from body?

i read in a magazine awhile back that its possible to completely remove paint from a body, its just that i cant remember what they used to remove it? Was it nail polish remover with a certain active ingredient? What was it?

if its spray paint you're using,just use an aggresive solvent like lacquer thinner or acetone.anything like that.just get a rag wet,squeeze out the excess,start swiping at it and increase solvent as needed.after the majority of it is gone,wet sant with 800 or finer.its alot of work but mistakes usually are.the chemicals used are going to leave burn marks in the plastics.the sandpaper will correct that.eventhough it looks hazy(after sanding)it will look just like new when you paint.

i was pretty mad when i tried to get paint off of my body. i used paint thinner, nail polish, alcohol, and gas. nothing came off. then i tried goof off. DO NOT use that. it melts the body and it will fall apart within seconds.

I was just about to ask the same question.
I ran out of paint when I got to my wing and now it looks horrible. candy blue w/ white backing and the blue ran out before it covered really well so i took the chance at putting the whit on there and it looks really nasty. so now i have to strip it and pick up another can of paint.
