    Look into oven cleaner. But don't try it until you have.

    I stripped mine with my da sander and 320 grit sandpaper. It didn't take very long at all.

    The paint stripper will probably eat into the plastic, put a little on the backside and see if it does.

    Can't see that coming back to bite you in the A$$!

    Personally sandpaper and some good ole' elbow grease will usually do the trick. Not a fun job, but they generally aren't that bad.

    There is urethane bumper stripper that might work, but again I am hesitant in using chemical unless there aren't really any other options. Too often I have had chemicals come back and cause issues when painting the parts later so I am a bit gun shy on that. Good Luck!

    They actually spent some time on it, and showed how it worked. I guess I should point out I'm not actually endorsing it or that I've done it, and after my bumper fiasco i may side with trey on this one. Unless you can find more info on it

    I will agree that brake fluid does do a great job of removing paint. Just not sure how well paint ever sticks to that same item again!
