How can I fix this paint?

My RG770 has some Van Halen like paint theme painted over the Laser Blue (criminal). I tried using mineral spirits to remove it, but it left a white sort of residue, which goes away when wet. I don't know much about this, but I'd love it if I could remove the Van Halen style paint and still have the Laser Blue in tact. Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

That stuff ought to be illegal. I once saw a RFR in a store, and some jerk had painted it black with crappy flames (hot rod style).

Are the stripes painted on top of the original clear coat? If so, you could just sand it down carefully and then buff the clear when you're done.

Ya, it's on top of the existing clear. I was thinking about carefully sanding down to the clear and then buffing. Might try that on the back.
