Question Faded LR letters/badges

The lettering/badges on my LR3 are sun faded badly. I don't want to fork over the $$$ to replace, rather I'd like to just remove the little paint that's left and leave the black plastic as is. Any suggestions on how to does this? Wet sand it off, maybe paint remover...? Would paint remover eat the plastic?

Cheers...

Perfect opportunity to remove the lettering and put Discovery on instead.
Or LR4 and confuse people....

I don't want to remove them, I just want to remove the faded paint and leave them bare.

Question

Where can I find new badges/lettering?
Genuine price is ridiculous!

Mall parking lots nationwide... Just hire some skateboard kids to go find a nice set, give them $20. They get a bag of grass, you get some badges, and a soccer mom files an insurance claim win-win-sortoflose
