    paint thinners on a old rag should take it write off. or you could go down the route of wet sanding and buffing.

    Nitro Mors .....Be extremely careful that you don't get any on any other painted surfaces.Its fine on glass and will work a treat

    Don't use Nitro Mors on the indicators though cause they are plastic and could melt....
