Maybe flip them the other way around, unless they painted the bottom side of the truck.

Have you worked your way through ALL the usuals, like (quality) paint stripper, lacquer thinner, toluene, acetone and MEK? And if all else fails, surrender, buy a few cans of black vinyl spray paint and do what comes naturally.

^^^Bu, bu, bu, but what else if he can't get the mil spec paint off?

* I did loller when I threw out that paint idea (the last resort); in some ways ranks right up there with a buddy of mines joke about slowly dumping a tube of alumseal into an intake with the engine running to seal a blown headgasket from "the inside out", ROFLMAO!
