Default Remove Latex Paint From Fiberglass/Asphalt Shingles

Any tips on removing dried latex paint from shingles made of asphalt & fiberglass would be appreciated. The shingles are dark and the latex paint is light, causing a sharp contrast and making the paint splotches stand out.

I don't think you can remove the paint without damaging the shingles. Perhaps you could apply a few shots of spray paint to hide the light colored paint.
