Its most likely not been painted its probably just the paint hasnt faded due to the strips having covered the paint. You could try colour restorer http://www.t-cut.co.uk/index.cfm?page=55 thats probably the best stuff to use shop around fornit though and you'll probably to be able to get it quite cheap. Most super markets tend to sell the stuff :) but you'll need to basically clean the full car, then use the colour restorer and then use a decent wax.

A good mop with colour cutting compound should restore an even finish to the car.

Something like wondercut or T-cut colour restorer.

2000 grit wet and dry, very lightly to remove the paint step, then G3 compound or T-cut, then finally give it a good polish.
