    I have a pair that were painted before I received them. What's the best way to remove it?

    It's a Splice that had flat black painted over top of the FMJ

    Acetone could do the trick, but as others have said the Doc would know best...

    Think of it as a service to the community Washi, to save others going down the same road...

    DO NOT use acetone! It eats plastic, O-Matter included. Thinner, lacquer thinner, mineral spirits will all degrade the plastic as well. They may not do it instantly, but it will make the frame brittle in the long run. I use Super Clean (100%, non-diluted). Let the glasses sit for a few hours to a few days (depending on the type of paint you're removing) then scrub with a soft brush. Works well and will not damage the plastic.

    Any idea whether or not this method will remove the original FMJ layer below?
