Removing paint from dashboard

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but you never know! We've just bought an old K11 Micra for our lad's first car and whilst the car is in overall fantastic condition for its age, for some reason the previous owner has painted the dashboard, a-pillar trims and door trims in black paint whilst leaving the rest of the interior in its standard grey. Brushed on, not sprayed, so no idea what sort of paint it is! Anyway, has anybody got any ideas as to how paint can be safely removed without damaging the plastic underneath?

I could go and buy a replacement dash and door cards but am a bit of a liability with a toolkit and would prefer to explore easier (and cheaper) options first.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I suspect that would be just about impossible or a right old pain in the rear with a chance of making it worse.

I agree with GSD it sounds a nightmare unless it's something like plastidip which is peelable and should be able to be removed relatively easily.

Seems bizarre unless the previous owner started then decided he didn't like it so stoped part way through.

It does sound unfortunately as the best option would be to pick up the offending parts second hand
