Use Denatured Alcohol and a qtip, it's the only way

Depends a bit.... is the clear part still separated from the vehicle? If so and if it is acrylic paint you probably could get results by holding it under the running tap with a bit of warm water and scrubbing it with a toothbrush.

You could give stripping it with ovencleaner like Mr Muscle a try but I have no clue if that stuff actualy attacks the transparency of the plastic. It doesn't seem to do a thing with normal plastic. So if you do this it might be wise to test it first with a bit of leftover sprue

If it is already on the vehicle the only suggestion I have or you is carefully scraping the stuff away and shoot the whole window wit clear laquer afterwarths. I have had great results in getting scrapes on windows and clear resin better that way.

This water was saved with clear laquer. The resin stuck to the dam I made from evergreen and was not plannin to lego... So I had to carve the dam off. Leaving the sides damaged and not transparent anymore... And somehow I touched the thing with wet fingers and I saw the resin becoming transparent again... And this gave me the idea that it might just work with Clear laquer. And it did.
I reject your reality and substitute it with my own.

Try Windex on a q-tip. That will take acrylic off of plastic, just be careful you don't take off more than you intend!

Good luck!

Maybe you try to use some polish Remover for acrylic paints "Wamod". You can buy it here: http://www.jadarhobby.pl/advanced_se...2a&language=en
I think that this remover is perfect.
