STG-58 Kit Cosmoline Removal

I bought a mint STG kit that is slathered in Hard, dried up cosmoline. The original color fill paint is on the lower, gas plug, regulator, etc...

What is the best way of removing the cosmoline without damaging the red and white color fill paint?

Boiling water works the best IMHO. There are a lot of good tips in this old thread of mine:

Boiling water for the win +1
There's only two reasons we showed up here, to party and kick some ass, and we're almost out of beer!
