almost embarred to show it but here is the potched up paint job i did on the coronet
the passenger side came out allright (other then being upside down)
but the driver side was beyond repair so its going into the pond and im going to do this the other way around, first lay down the black and then try to decal the red

Hey guys. Unfortunately due to some unforseen financial issues I'll have to sit this one out. I do sincerely appologise. But I will keep watching the thread to see it eveolve. I do still plan to build a 67 Dodge, only the hotwheels isn't even close to the custom dream rod I have in my head :P

thats too bad aaron
ill talk to greg and see if we can at least keep you as a member (usually this type of thing is cause for suspension)

in the mean time i could use some advice on the pond
i had the car in both rubbing alcohol and easy off and it took off the top coat
now the red laquer and the silver (model masters laquer) are still on there strong as well as most of the primer

any suggestions on how to remove those?

I have never had any luck removing lacquer paint Eelco. Although you should first try all the known paint removers known to modeling including but not exclusive to: Brake fluid, Easy Off oven cleaner, 91% rubbing alcohol and Simple green cleaning fluid. I have also had chrome removed with Coca cola®! So try everything.

If none of those work... lightly sand and prime and paint it again... or buy a new body?

the only 2 from that list i havent tried are simply green and dot 3
im a bit skiddish to use dot 3 because last time i did use it it ended up melting the model, it literally looked like it got runned over by a monster truck
(maybe 8 months was too long? )

i did do some samding today (3200 wet) since i had to take a shower anyway and i couldnt even get through to the primer

dont sweat it....we're just riling on you



on a side note
i finally bit the bullet last night and dumped the GTX into some dot3
the container was too smal for the entire body so i only submerged the driver side in it
i went to check it when i woke up this morning and from under the snakeskinned paint/primer i was greated by some nice white styrene :D

always a good sign! you should see my F250. besides the body pannels, grille, interior and half the chassis it's mostly missing in the parts bin. coverred in hideous glue stains. to cover up the crappy bodywork i want to make a wild custom, combining body pannels from both the f 250 and a 53 vette :o
