**HELP**Messed up my painting

Well I finally went too far with my painting and messed up.I removed my door panels. Taped off the front side of the speaker grills and painted through the back. When I removed the tape and re-installed, it looked bad. Does anybody know of anything that will take off the paint, without harming my panel. I tried finger nail polish remover, it was ok. tried scraping it out, not the most effecient. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

Yes. I've tried a small tool bout like that. Not getting it all off. Would paint thinner harm anything?

I would try those harsh cleaners only (like Duplicolor lacquer thinner) on a test area, maybe the backside of the door panel first! look for possible hazing...let your cleaner soak for a bit first then try to remove.
after cleaning, soap water wash it down.
don't use metal brushes either.

I would say just paint over it with another color to cover it up. Thats probably the easiest and it will look different.

I was trying to understand your first post. It sounds like you were painting the back? of your door panels? Were you trying to get some kind of effect?
