removing paint from "wheel spat"

My truck came with painted spats but I would rather have them black. Is there a good way to remove the paint from these without damaging the plastic or am I stuck having to replace them?

Thanks, Jason

There is a good link here someplace that describes how to paint them. I have painted two set that turned out pretty good. I used a plastic prep prior to painting.

Did you strip them first? I am pretty sure mine are black under the blue paint. Not much on this truck is original
