Try Goo Gone or some of the citris type cleaners. Use a clean cotton cloth only to avoid scratches. Leave the stuff on for a few minutes.
Just to be safe, maybe remove a mount or lug and try the stuff under that area first. Good luck.
And there is always WD40, but that has an oily residue that needs to be cleaned off later.

I was also going to suggest WD40. It will clean up fine on the acrylic shell with just some mild detergent afterwards.

I believe its called "frost".
If you look at price lists, the Crystalites were available in "clear", "smoke" and "frost".
