If you want to remove all the paint and start over, take the window masks off. Pour a little bit of brake fluid in the body and try to spread it so it covers most the paint. You only need a little. Then let it sit for 10 minutes and come back to it with a toothbrush and all the paint should come right off. You might need to repeat. After you got all the paint off you need to REALLY clean it with some detergent before you start painting again.

Good luck!

No problem,

yeah it should work, It took several coats of pactra black right off mine

I just wash my bodies in the kitchen sink with some dish soap to get rid of all the oils before panting to help the paint stick. I would however wash it off outside first to get most of the brake fluid off..

That should work fine. I use the brake cleaner trick all the time. I am HORRIBLE at painting bodies, which is why I am a big fan of decals You may also wanna try soaking paper towels in brake fluid and lay them in the body. That's what I do.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe brake CLEANER (not fluid) will damage the Lexan.
