Spray Paint Removal

Not too long ago I purchased a preowned nomad. The previous owner did some spray paint stenciling on the bow of the Wu-tang clan logo. Don't get me wrong, I can get down with the Wu, but the stenciling isn't too good and I'd like to remove it.

I'm thinking that nail polish remover might be the best way to go, but I'm concerned that there might be some adverse reaction to the plastic.

Is there a better way to go about removing the spray paint or is nail polish remover okay?

Toluene. I've used it before to remove permanent marker inside of a kayak. It won't harm the plastic.

I'd go to an auto paint store and ask them what to use on it. They make paint stripper for plastic....since so many cars come with plastic parts on them.....
