neverknow, point taken ... I would keep the MEK right on the lettering and do small areas at a time. You can also backwipe with a wet rag to dillute the MEK after rubbing. With awlgrip underneath, your options are limited for removing an overlay of paint.
Found this from Awlgrip.
AWLGRIP ONLY: Solvents such as AWL-PREP -T0008, AWL-PREP PLUS-T0115, AWL-PREP 400-T0170, toluene, lacquer thinner, M.E.K., acetone, or kerosene may be used to soften or remove heavy build ups of grease and grime, felt tip markings, or aerosol spray paint on the AWLGRIP Topcoat
But to your point, proceed slowly testing in a small area first.
