First step, find out if it's oil or latex on there now
Easiest way:
Rub some Oops! or Goof Off on it and see if the finish comes off on the rag
If it does, it's latex
Clean, then repaint with latex

If it doesn't, we need to find out if it's oil, or has a clearcoat on it
That's a little trickier
Try the latex test first
