When you paint over your favorite carbon fiber piece, can the paint later be removed so that it the entire piece is shows CF again?

I have a feeling that the body shop would sand down the clear coat of the CF piece and then start painting, but I may be wrong.

You can remove the paint and change the color or reclear the CF after the paint has been removed.
