I found an 87 coupe in the junkyard today, gotta couple of interior pieces but they were painted. I would like to remove the crap paint and try again, any suggestions?

Heat gun maybe. Sanding will remove the texture and stripper will probably melt the plastic. If the paint is adhering well to the plastic I'd just scruff it up and respray.

Clean Rags and Laquer thinner. at first, drown it, most will wipe right off in about 15 seconds. then just dampen the rag and wipe off the rest.

I dont think you can remove color from a recolored carpet. New carpet is available.
Ebrake handle, probably, I'd try rubbing alcohol first, it depeneds on what they colored it with.
I'm not sure which things are trim. But in most cases it is probably easier to replace the parts with used parts. Could try the "Mall" here on the forum.

Try soaking it in brake fluid and rinsing with water.

This is what I usually do. Some say brake cleaner takes the paint off plastics, but never tried it that I remember.
