Default Problem with LMF...

Had a customer send me what I thought was a brand new HPI 5B body. But after opening the bag I realized it had LMF on the main piece of the body. I want to start fresh on the shell and apply my own LMF so I tried peeling it off. It just won't budge. I haven't seen LMF stick like this ever... right now its soaking in some hot water and that is helping a bit. But I want something faster to remove this. Any help is greatly appreciated!

In the past I've found isopropyl alcohol to work well in dissolving lm and has not hurt the lexan, although I've never soaked a body for any length of time in the stuff.
