    John,
    Thanks. In doing a bit of research on the Jimmy Means cars from 1987. In addition to the Grand Prix's Jimmy also ran Monte Aerocoupes in the Turtle Wax scheme. BTW the builds you have shown on the site in addition to the information you offer is invaluable to all of us. Your builds are PHENOMENAL. Thank you.

    Clear coat on windshield and back window glass=Help
    To all hi
    Okay so being the Brainiac that I am I have succeded in clear coating my windshield and back window on my latest project. What a mess. I have tried rubbing alcohol, stainless steel polish, toothpaste, windex, and nothing has worked. It has been suggested that I used LA Totally Awesome All Purpose Cleaner. I cannot source it locally but have found a similar product by Top Job. Question I have is do I have to take the glass out and soak it in the liquid or can I leave glass intact and swab on with a Qtip or a cotton ball and then wipe it clean? FYI I have glued the glass in place with Testors Canopy Glue then glued from the inside with standard Testors Model Cement. So I would probably have to exacto knife it off I would think. Help is most appreciated. Thanks

    Easy Off seemed to work. I then wet sanded some areas. Will let her dry and then re attempt the paint. Thanks to all for putting up with me.

    I have secured a backup body from eBay. The description says Davey Allison 1990 Thunderbird but I assume it the same as the one I got with the kit. The only difference is the picture of the one I just got has a notch in front of the right rear wheel well (exhaust cutout?). If anyone has built the 1990 kit am I correct about the purpose of the notch?

    Brian thanks for the advice. If the Easy Off doesn't work I'll p/u another kit on eBay.

    Hello. I used the yellow E-O. Put the body hood and bumpers in a large rectangular Tupperware with a snap lid. I'm attempting to remove The Rustoleum paint and primer in one paint (2 coats) maybe the second shot will do the trick. Hopefully.

    Thanks Stan
    No pitting or scarring of the body ( of the car )??

    Okay building a Monogram 1991 Davey Allison Havoline T Bird. Sprayed 2 coats of Rustoleum Gloss Black Paint and Primer on her. Got a definite haziness so put Easy Off on her to strip her last night. This morning took her out scrubbed and rinsed her. Paint didn't budge. She's in her 2nd application of EO. Getting concerned (insert panicky here) that I have effed the body up. Anyone with suggestions I'd certainly appreciate it. Thanks

    Mark be careful. It hazed on me and looked suspect. So I decided to strip it and start over so I'm on my 2nd Easy Off coating ( the first time around didn't lift the paint/primer I put 2 coats) sprayed the Easy Off again this morning. I got some pitting it appears. Hoping I didnt EFF it up or I'll be sicker over it more than I am now. Gloss black is a pain in the caboose I really didn't need. I should've listened to the expert modelers.

    Rustoleum I'm using is paint & primer in one.
