Default Stripping Paint from trim

The roller I just bought has one of those "we paint everything that isnt taped off" deals going on. I want to strip the paint off the trim pieces on the exterior of the car. They are supposed to be black from the factory. I believe they are just plastic pieces, and aren't painted. So I just want to remove the paint, and it should be black underneath. What do I use to strip the paint off these areas? I wouldn't think to sand it, since I don't believe it'll need to be painted after. I've seen some things online that say use rubbing alcohol or DOT 3 brake fluid (yeah I was like when I saw this)



I did a MSPaint edit and circled the areas that I want to remove the paint. I put an arrow towards the mirror, but I'll prob leave that painted.

Thanks!

i bet paint thinner would work. aircraft stripper would work wonders but that would probably damage the color of the plastic.

if it were me i would just sand it off and repaint it black

Exactly what I was going to suggest. Remove it (if possibile) strip it, and paint it black, you could even do a satin finish to make it look more original.
