Hello guys and if there is a girl on here,

I painted my stock with rustoleum about six months ago. Can anyone tell me a safe way to remove the paint from my stock without damaging it. I decided to go with a different pattern.

go easy on the acetone as it may attack the plastic. I think if I were doing this I would be resorting to vey labor intensive methods such as:
1. gently scraping the old paint off with a single edge razor blade. (expect to spend hours and hours).
2. sand off with very fine sandpaper. Again expect spend ours.

use the time to remind myself why I painted it in the first place. Think twice -paint once.

There are several forms of blast media , silica, crushed walnut shells ECt... I would stay clear of any aluminum oxide/ silica mix as that will start to remove metal and can drastically change surface Finish.
Go slow by whatever method you utilize .

Thanks a lot for the input, The whole stock is not covered I just have a Predator helmet silhouette that is sponged on and also the time bomb thing on the side. I try and get some pics of it up.
