Tape it off and use a small cotton buff on a rotary tool along with rouge or buffing compound...... then stand back and make sure you have shades on :)

My cowl tag had that much paint on it you could barely read the letters. I bet there was 5 coats of paint on it.

I took a screw driver and putty knife and knocked off the worst of it. I then used sand paper to cut more of it. I then used mineral spirits and 0000 steel wool. I spent hours and hours on it. When I was finished it I left it aluminum and did not apply any paint to it. I left it natural. It shines.
