If the paint is fully cured, your better to turf the part out and get a new one.

If the paint is still wet, try turps/metho/petrol/thinnners, your eventually find one that removes it good

sand paper but the problem is it will be smooth and not have that stock ripple. Thats ok if you go with a gay silver.
