If it's thick, I'd try and hit it with a small knife or pick of some sort to try and chip off what you can, and then slam it with some sort of acidic compound (if amonia/household cleaners won't work) and scrub it with whatever you've got around. From what I read old school ****ty oil based paints leave a residue that acidic stuff can break down.

Maybe some Comet cleaner, dunno.

Here is my secret weapon. I have used it for years to clean paintball guns and equipment covered in the "bad" paints like brass eagle and a few others.
its guaranteed(by me) to work ,but you must be careful with certain plastics(like the clear lids to hoppers) as it can damage certain types.
Pure Citrus Orange Air Freshener, 7 fl oz: Household Essentials :
when nothing else will break down the sticky bad paint , this stuff will.

If it's a Qpod, meaning that it's just a big plastic tube, then use the Simple Green method and be done. There's no anodizing to worry about stripping off.
