Boler interior insulation seams - removing silicone

Hi there,
So the previous owner of my Boler jammed all of the interior seams of the Ensolite with silicone caulking - feathered out up to an inch or two wide in some places. No primer will stick to it and as a result the previous owner’s paint job has chipped away at all of the seams. Removing the silicone seems ridiculously daunting. The interior looks pretty terrible with the unpainted silicone exposed.

Would it be ridiculous to cut a 2” strip out at every seam joint and then replace with a 2” strip of something else? Recommendations for “something else” appreciated.

Also appreciated are other possible solutions to render my interior paintable.

Thanks in advance!
Karen

Cover the silicone with tape or something else and use proper caulk to feather and blend to the Ensolite. Then paint. Otherwise rip the silicone out somehow. No matter what method you use, there will need to be some caulk use so you can blend whatever is done to the Ensolite.
