Paint stripper, but would have to make sure it was safe for plastic products, wouldn't want to melt whatever you were stripping :LOL:

i found some stuff at walmart made by the bulldog stuff that is used to promote stuff to plastic

the stuff that takes it off is real bad for you so if anyone use that crap wear a real resiptor and protective clothing cuz that shit is rough but it works pretty good

did it look dingy or milky? Clear as it dries will look milky but if you give it long enough it will get crystal clear.

Also, sounds like if you has just let it dry throughly you could have sanded it down some and reshot it without having to have stripped the whole thing, the only reason you would have needed to strip it all was if you had a bad chemical reation with the paints and it turned to gunk.
