Plasti dip removal

So I Plasti dipped my whole front grill. I want to take off the Plasti dip on the grill itself but u can't just peel it off on the honeycomb part. Does anybody know of any solvents or anything that will help remove the Plasti dip but won't damage the plastic on the grill. My idea is to put some of the solvent on it and pressure wash it off. Any ideas?

I have never tried but from what i have heard wd-40 does the trick. Spray it on let it soak for a minute and wipe or spray off.

We-40 won't discolor the plastic underneath or anything

Take the grill off your truck and spray with wd40. Let it sit for a min or two and hose it off with a fairly hard spray from the hose. Or a pressuse washer that's not quite so powerful.
