Krylon spray paint chemically penetrates plastic. I dunno if you can get it all off.

DOT 4 brake fluid works on Lexan car bodies... might work on this application. Acetone eats some plastics... what kind of prop are we talking about? Nylon, Wood, CF?

Acetone is probably fine for that, I also doubt the paint has penetrated the surface.
