:uh: ever look before you leap?

for those that are even too damn lazy to click a link here is what is on the other side of the link:

At some time or other all of us mess up a paint job. The good news is it doesn't have to be the end of a good model. You can strip the paint and start over.

There are a couple of popular paint strippers in use. They may not actually be created to strip paint but since they strip paint so well and without damaging the model we use them.

Here is the list of the most popular:

1. Castrol Super Clean (popularly referred to as CSC)
2. Easy Off Oven Cleaner
3. Any DOT-2 Brake Fluid (Do not use brake cleaner)

When you select which stripper to use, it is important to note which paint you used. CSC will effectively remove enamels and acrylics, but not lacquers. Brake fluid on the other hand will remove lacquers as well as most of the other paint types.

Using of brake fluid and CSC is much the same process as detailed here.

Go to your local auto supply store and buy:

1. A bottle of CSC or brake fluid.
2. A pair of rubber gloves.
3. A cheap brush with medium bristles (an old toothbrush will work
just as well).
4. A plastic Tupperware-like box that's bigger than the car body.

To begin with CSC:

1. Wear gloves.
2. Pour all the CSC into the plastic box.
3. Put the car body in the plastic box, in the CSC. Don't worry if the
car isn't completely covered, you can let it sit, then flip it over to
get the other side later.
4. Let it soak for at least four hours.
5. Use your gloved finger to rub some of the treated paint. If it
smears off it's almost ready. When it wipes off it is ready.
6. Use the brush to scrub all the paint off.
7. Wash the body with water and detergent. CSC is reusable and
never loses its potency, so there is no need to throw it away. On
the other hand, brake fluid does tend to lose its strength over
time.

If you're going to use oven cleaner instead of CSC it's equally easy. Just make sure that in addition to the above list of supplies you're also working in an area with good ventilation.

1. Place the model/body/part in a sealable container/plastic bag
and spray a generous amount of oven cleaner over the model.
Please be careful as the fumes are powerful!
2. Seal the container/plastic bag so it is airtight and leave it alone
for several hours. You must make certain it's sealed because the
vapors do as much work as the liquid itself so you don't want
them to escape.
3. After the foam has subsided and there is only liquid oven cleaner
in the container carefully open it and scrub the paint off with a
brush.
4. Repeat the spraying step if necessary.
5. Once all paint has been removed thoroughly wash the body with
water and detergent.

One final and very important note. Whenever you are working with a chemical strong enough to strip paint you are working with a chemical strong enough to damage your skin. Whenever working with chemicals like these always wear a good pair of rubber gloves and a pair of safety glasses/goggles. You can never be too safe!

does it work on any kinda pplastic
anything exept diecast and resin[/b][/quote]
yeah, this is true.... resin is a whole differant material that is more "tempermental" so to speak.

as far as diecast goes.... use "Aircraft Remover" on that. works like a charm and is available at auto parts stores over with the bondo and stuff.

so what can i use for resin?
easy off oven cleaner. Safe on just about anything except your hands.

If that doesn't work, use automotive thinner to rub it off, using water OFTEN to rinse it off.
