Restoring the original color

Hey, new here. Just bought a 2000 V6. Blue w/ white stripes. I noticed an under color coming through in places looked up original color code on door says electric green. My question is: Is there a way to remove the crappy blue paint job and restore the original color without to much damage?

Agreed. Most likely there is no real good way to remove that top coat without doing damage to the original paint, mainly due to inconsistent adhesion. Some areas probably bonded stronger than others making removing it much more difficult.

I believe professional paint shops use a stripper that's made to remove just the top layer somehow. It's too bad, because electric green was one of the rarer color options for those years.
