Anyone ever remove paint from half door panels?

I have a pair of YJ half hard doors but the inside plastic panels have been painted and the original color underneath (spice) is what I need them to be. So my question is has anyone used anything to help take the paint off? I read that Zep-Off has been used on plastic with great results and oven cleaner. Anything else? Thanks.

Paint strippers will melt the plastic. If the paint is holding up well just prep it and paint it spice.

I ended up hitting them with the pressure washer. Blasted the paint off pretty easily. Should hold up better than any plastic/vinyl paint.

That would be one time I would be glad the PO didn't prep it right. Looks good.
