In Topic: Removing Tamiya Tape residue

01 May 2015 - 01:26 AM

First off - NEVER leave tape on  "a few days"  !! :blink: , take it off carefully ( by slowly pulling it over itself ); the longer you leave it, the more chance for the tape glue to react with the paint below, ( which probably was be still gassing out- the paint solvent evaporating; as in your case here ) ........ again, the best / easiest way to tell if your paint is cured, is to smell it; if there is a smell, let it dry until there is none; then do your taping. anyway - let this dry a couple days & try Ronson lighter fluid, it works - but be gentle; put a tiny amount on a piece of T shirt cloth & it will do the trick; first test it in an inconspicuous place to be sure it's fine with this paint. - good luck.   :)

 

BINGO !  Good old cigarette lighter fluid DOES work ,  I've used both Ronson and Zippo brands .


In Topic: Changing color on tires..... how ?

After detailing my tires I always spray them with DullCote to give them a nice satin finish .  

It dries quickly and doesn't seem to rub off , so I bet you could spray another color on top of it !

 

I've never done this but it might be worth a try on an old tire to see if it works .  :)

Excellent !  The overall look , the paint , the engine , the wheels and tires . . . you nailed it !

It definitely belongs on a shelf or in a display cabinet !  :D
