The color was interesting but I dislike the monster stickers. It is time to strip off and to come back to a more classic color.
the paint is very hard to remove. The body is still in its caustic soda bath.
The rear door and the roof received the final color Yesterday. Not the classic brilliant black because I haven't more. It will be a metalic black

What have you used so far?

Usually one of these will work:
Caustic Soda.
Dot 3 brake fluid. Dot 4 is more eco feiendly and it's less aggresive towards paint.
Oven cleaner. get the nasty stuff, the eco friendly ones are usually next to useless.
Grafitti remover.
Paint stripper. Use the plastic safe stuff.

If these will not shift the paint, the only left is to sand it I'm afraid.
I had a Lunchbox body that was to far for use so I turned it into a trailer.
On that I did try everything, but nothing would remove the paint so I had to sand it by hand.
That took a while to put it mildly.

I use caustic soda + soda crystals but in an open box and in my workshop. Another matter is the cold temperature. The caustic soda works but it's very long... ;)
what is strange is that when I removed the bigger stickers, the paint comed with them. Maybe the clear coats reduce the soda effect..
