Default Subaru Touch-Up Paint Removal.....HELP!

OK, here's the situation. The previous owner of my 02' WRX (WRB) used Subaru Touch-Up Paint to cover up a nasty scratch on the passenger side front door, damage was done by a runaway grocery cart, or so he says. The thing is, he did a $hitty job. This was done over a year ago. Is there a safe way to remove the touch-up paint without damage to the paint in the surrounding area? Any help will be appreciated. Pics will be up on Monday. Thanks.

You can use some thinner or preferrebly some automotive paint reducer cured clear should not be affected by either of these solvents. Clear is only affected by acids or any chemical with etching properties. But in any case you cant be to careful use a minimal amount at a time and test on a area not too noticeable first.

You want this product. I use it all the time, and never once had an issue.
