Try Nitro fuel, normally does the trick.

Before you paint your next shell, here's a tip.

If the shell doesn't come with overspray film cover the outside with wax car polish, paint the shell then polish off the wax.

UM thats not a bright idea.
Brake fluid eats paint work to bare metal, and In saying that
im sure it will eat your body through to nuthing.

brake fluid is the coice of chemicals to get paint off, i've used it before. Once the paint is off, make sure to clean it with metho or shellite, then wipe down with hot soapy water

allow to dry and respray
