Removing Black Lettering From Side Vents...

Anyone come up with a good way to get the black lettering off of the side vents where it says "f250" and all the other stuff? I've got a set of the street scene inserts being painted white and wanted to get all the black lettering off when they are finished...

A friend of mine told me to soak them in brake fluid, but I was wondering if anyone knows of something that would just take it off without the soaking...

I should add--I've tried acetone and laquer thinner already....

I soaked mine in acetone for 15mins and it came right off.
