Assuming it's normal paint and not one of those two part types of paint that requires a catalyst like car paint or industrial paint, it will come off fairly easily with acetone or something like that. Car paint normally totally resistant to most over the counter solvents and paint strippers, so being able to dissolve the red paint without effecting the car paint won't be a problem. The parts other than the paint, like trim or the plastic headlights will likely be a different story, since that acetone or something like that will likely disolve it a little and make it cloud, which would require polishing to get it gloss again. But if it's a surface that has more a flat or satin surface, that might be more of a challenge.
