Removing Paint

Decided I don't like the color for the center console that I painted. I also messed up in this one spot and it's really bothering me. Can I still use paint remover or something to remove the paint and the clearcoat and paint it a different color? Or should I just avoid the hassle and bring it to a body/paint shop and have them do it instead? Thanks

Well I've sanded it down after the first time I painted it to repaint it cause I messed up...Sanding was a huge hassle so I probably want to take it to a shop instead. If I take it to a shop, you think they would sand it down and repaint the whole thing for me?

Probably would do it for you, but may charge extra wink

Hmm, think $70~100 sounds about right for the entire center console ?
