Need Help - Removing Hand Painted Accents

I recently bougtht a used CJ-7. Body and paint are really nice, but the PO hand painted swirls and other accents over the top of the paint job. They did a nice job - it's just not my thing. Can I safely remove this paint without affecting the clear coat, and if so how? I've got a whole array of tools, buffers, sanders, rubbing & polishing compounds, just have never attempted something like this before. See pic.

I remove decals, paint, ect.. on a regular basis. If the acents are hand painted i would use a can of 3M adhesive remover. It will soften the paint, you can use a razor, and carefully scrape it clear, and wipe it down with the adhesive remover after you are done. Then just wash it off, and use some clear coat restorer, or fine buffing compound, a good coat of way, and your scrole work free.

Thanks Rubirocker. Never used the stuff before but I'll give it a try. Do I apply the adhesive remover with a cloth and rub or with a small brush and let it soak until the paint softens? Will the adhesive remover soften the clearcoat if I use too much or don't get it off quick enough? Jim

I use a rag for things like paint, tree sap, and road grime. I just soak the entire area where a decal is being removed, then scrape it. I have left his stuff on vehicles that are surpluss, and going to sale. It has never damaged the clear coat that i have seen. I imagine that in the corect circumstance it can. I use it on my jeep to remove decals, and cleaned off over spray froma rattle cann.
