I think whatever you use would take the original paint of as well.

I dont know how you would get it off without damaging the original paint. Maybe re-paint it or get some camoclad

you might try some of those citrus wipes you can buy at auto zone, they work great on alot of things. i think they are called scrubs.

Go to home depot get some grafitti remover safe on most surfaces. Try it on a small spot first.
