I have several lucky craft crankbaits to repaint and was wondering the best way to get the crawfish legs off the bill without ruining it. I have tried several methods and the all mess the lip up. Acetone worked the best, but it started breaking down the plastic. Any help would be appreciatted. Thanks,

I don't know any chemical that would take off the claws without damaging the bill's plastic. I'd try scraping off the paint and, if needed, clearcoating the bill along with the rest of the repainted crankbait.

Just curious,
Have you tried mineral spirits? It will pull stains off of lacquer safely. Maybe it would remove the legs without smoking up the bill.

Get some break fluid. I had a rc car body that i painted. Well i screwed up and soaked the body in a tub a brake fluid. Soak it for about ten minnutes. Then take a rag and whip off the paint. you will have to repeat as amny times as it takes to get the paint off.
