Acid Tape (not exactly)

02 January 2014 - 05:06 AM

Here is the problem:

Wherever any tape or BMF touches new paint on body the adhesive removes paint particles damaging finish upon removal.  Also, clear-coat does not adhere well to this finish.  The paint used here is Testors in square bottle thinned with lacquer thinner then tried again with same paint thinned with Testors Enamel Thinner with equal results. Silver is the color being used.  Anybody have an answer for this?

Just what exactly is "cheap lacquer thinner" that I often see referred to?


Local Home Depots,  neighborhood hardware stores,  and non automotive paint stores all have the same medium drying product.


There seem to be no options as to expensive or cheap without buying in 5 gallon size at discount automotive paint store.




Brush on Primer ?

19 September 2013 - 09:53 AM

Is there any product available that could be used for touching-up (w/brush) bare plastic that sometimes is exposed after sanding primer from a high spot or be used for filling the last of those pesky deep sanding scratches?


It seems to be kind of a waste to spray such small areas sometimes.
