    Well, as an architect I guess that burning will be fine, but before that try some sort of paint removals.

    If you can't remove them spray paint them with the cheap can of silver paint it'll look better and eventually it'll all wire off

    I would use something stiff plastic and scrape off as much as possible. Then try cloths saturated with Goo Gone. Let them set to allow the paint to soften and scrape/wipe it off. WD 40 for any residue.

      This should work! I'd try this before any of the more difficult methods.

    I would try to match the color paint. It looks like it has a matte finish at this point. Touch up the spots and spray with a matte finish sealer, or paint straight down to the gutter on both sides with a paint that is as close as you can get. Bring home paint samples and lay them on the roof in the sunlight to get closest match. I have found that places that claim to do a "color match" using a computer are not very close in color.
