Removing Paint

I 've got an AX10 with orange and green anadized parts. Does anyone know a simple trick to remove the paint?

I heard oven cleaner worked but it does not seem to do the job. Brake fluid takes all the paint off my f-toy when I spill so I'll give that a try. Thanks

Easy Off oven cleaner will take the annodizing (not paint) of Axial aluminum parts. Castrol Super Clean will work too (a little slower, but no fumes). It'll be a really dull finish once the annodizing is gone. A little aluminum polish will brighten them up, though
If you do use the Easy Off shit, make sure to do it outside......

The easy off oven cleaner worked great, just make sure you use the original heavy duty, not the stuff for self cleaning ovens.
