your gonna have to get some 600grit sand paper and sand the paint off. Then repaint it. I did it for my center console. Dipping the sand paper in some 70% concretate or higher alcohol helps to get off the paint too. I think you can use nail polish remover too, i think its a bit stronger then the alcohol. Do it on a weekend because its going to take forever.

DON'T SAND YOUR CAR! If your not experienced... Take it to a shop. If you don't know what your doing your make it worse... Although, there always is the honda parts department to run to when you mess up!

if your careful its not bad. If your going to repaint it anyways, you wont see the scratches anyways. If you ever felt 600grit sand paper, it's barely sand paper. It feels like regular paper with some small bumps. Thats why i said it would take forever.

thats a nice *** job, but it also costs a pretty penny. I mean if you got the money the best way to go is to take it to a body shop. But if your on broke status like the most of us just go with the sandpaper and paint. one of my friends used model paint it came out coo. just an idea if your really BROKE! hehe
