Sand Blasting Plastic?

I want to take all my paint off my plastic grille so I can repaint it. can I just sandblast the thing or will it break?

I've never sandblasted before so I don't know

sandblasting will put big marks in it. High grit sandpaper. If you're jus tryin to remove old paitn then try acetone on a paper towel, but dont scratch it too hard or the acetone will attack the paint.

if you have access to a Media Balster or Soda (baking soda) blaster those work great
We got them at my work and they take off the pain and dont hurt the surface
