I would NOT use brake cleaner, the aerosol stuff, it will cloud the lexan. It also evaporates so fast will will pick up the paint and then dry right back...

Nitro fuel works, not as good as brake fluid. Plus, thats stuff is for running through your car!

Just use it as a practice body, get another one and learn from your mistakes!

Depending on the paint you used you can do the following:

Lacquer based paint: Get some Dynamite Body Cleaner, stuff works awesome and you only need a small amount. Comes in a small bottle for about 5 bucks.

Fastcolor/createx: Denatured alcohol will take it off.

There is also some stuff I get at Lowe's/Home Depot called "Paint Remover" Lift Off. it comes in a spray bottle and is primarily for removing graffiti. It works really well and is very cheap. It will take off either paint type.

NON ACETONE finger nail polish remover also works if you happen to have it around. Make sure it is NON ACETONE though.
