Has anyone ever tried Simple Green as a paint stripper? It really works. It is non toxic, biodegradeable and does'nt smell bad. The only drawback is you need to soak the piece for a while depending on how old the paint is but typically overnight will do it. I had to strip down my Wonder Woman (get your minds out of the gutter) because I messed up the flesh tones and it took the paint off right down to the plastic with no damage to the plastic. You can get it at Walmart or any auto parts store.
