Besides sanding, what can I put on an old plastic nose cone to take off the paint. I think the paint is Krylon, but not 100% sure. Anyone have an old trick they would like to share? Thanks.

well im not sure but nail polish remover might work I don't really know if it would do anything to the plastic. There are some paint stripers out there that can be used on plastic.

You could always put a white primer coat or two over the old paint then add the new colors. That is assuming the old paint is still in good shape.

Hopefully someone else here can point you in the right direction about using chemicals to remove paint. I wouldn't try it unless you are sure it won't hurt anything. ;)
