Try a little Model Master airbrush thinner on a Q-tip and see if that has an effect. If it does then use more on a papertowel and work small panels at a time. Then finish up with steel wool on the body areas. Avoid messing up the window areas of course... but Model Master airbrush thinner will not hurt Lexan.

Another idea might be to try stripping it out with "Easy Off" oven cleaner.
