The original finish on my car was brown metallic. It has been repainted white. There are a few scratches and scuffs in the white paint, but I don't see any damage to the 'glass underneath. I don't know how to remove the white paint without damaging the brown finish. Any suggestions? Thanks.
I tried the oven cleaner and it didn't touch the white paint on my car so I will use the oven cleaner I bought for degreaser on the engine instead. I will try something else on the paint. Oven cleaner might work on yours though. Depends on what kind of paint's on it.

mine was sprayed with grey (gray?) primer from a rattle can, he did not sand first, so, I got that goin for me. I have tried a few different options on the headlight covers (I don't plan on using them) from sanding until I start to see color, then wetsanding, to "eco friendly" strippers. Everything seems to take off just a little too much of the clear on the gel coat. my last option for now is a product that was recommended by a local boat shop, its a paint stripper that's "safe for fiberglass"........we will see
The issue with trying to get paint off the car and leave the gelcoat intact is that with sandpaper you need to be very careful that you don't sand through the gelcoat. If you can get the paper off without cutting too deep into the gelcoat then you can polish the luster back.
Be careful with chemical strippers. They can invade the fiberglass and cause the gelcoat to buckle.
