Acetone takes the paint off the foam no problem. You might test it on the inside of the cowl to make sure it doesn't bite into the plastic.

Great video ! Nice scenery
Saw a couple good "shots" in the turns there. Zero pilot needs to work on his game.. Lol j/k. He should be out turning the jug...then try to beat him to altitude.
