Thanks John, and all for your suggestions.

I have a Paasche air-eraser and have used aluminum-oxide & baking soda for paint removal and etching resin and brass.

I was first wondering if through you-all's experiences that the lettering paint-type was found to be different than the Walther's car's paint-type, and that lettering removal could be done by a "mild" method that would not disturb the car's main paint-type.

I've seen your discussions before about different manufacturer's plastic-types and paint-types, and using different removers as per the materials involved.

Instead of trying to use a "mystery" solvent that might melt the plastic, air-erasing might just be the best modern method.

If you run out of options, send it to me and I'll sandblast the lettering off and clean it up for you. Will only take a few minutes.
