    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 )??

    Stupid, stupid, stupid me!!!
    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.

    Thanks I'll let you know. If Mr. Humidity cooperates tonight I'll lay down the gloss black.

    Not bad for my 1st attempt.

    Very nice job. I'm in the process of doing a Kyle Petty Gran Prix and a Davey Allison Thunderbird using the Rustoleum 2x paints. Very impressed with the result.

    Hey all
    It has arrived today. 1991 Davey Allison Havoline Thunderbird. I have been advised not to use the kit decals. Instead use the Powerslide set. Thoughts on where to get Powerslide decals as I have seen them but they're expensive. Thanks
