Does anyone know how to remove paint from Soft top plastic windows?

This is my first post on here so if I screw up certain procedures sorry in advance. Anyway I just bought my first Jeep (2008 Wrangler X) and so far I love it. I am starting to customize it and was wondering how to get paint off of the soft top plastic windows. The previous owner spray painted the inside of the back window black rendering the rear view mirror useless. Any tips to get this window mack clear? Paint thinner? Scraper? Your help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Pretty much anything you use is going to leave a mark. The paint probably already has. You can try denatured alcohol and a microfiber cloth and let it sit and don't use too much pressure. Once you get the paint off, some Novus plastic polish should get rid of some of the haze

Try grafitti remover from walmart. Worked good for me on multiple surfaces without any damage. Just a thought.

just be careful, the solvent based stuff may cause some clouding where you use it because of the chemicals

have you tried goo-gone?
