I have a clear, smooth glass shower door that came from the factory
with painted white stripes on it. I want to remove a couple of the
more narrow stripes as they have deteriorated..
I've tried different types of paint strippers, but none worked. Is
there some kind of polishing compound that might remove the paint
without damaging the glass? Maybe a polishing compound I could use
with a Dremel buffing tool? Or maybe some other method? Any ideas
would be appreciated.
If you want the paint remover to work, try using a better paint
remover. What paint remover did you use? That and removing the glass
and placing it do that it's horizontal so that you can more easily let
the paint remover soak in for a good while.

A shower door uses tempered safety glass that shatters into tiny bits
if damaged. It comes in a fixed size and cannot be custom cut by a
glazier to fit. That said the paint is likely baked on to resist the
extreme environment of hot water and soaps. Its unlikely you can
remove the remaining "paint" without extreme measures (hot scraping)
and risk breaking the glass.
