    Waiting to see the finish product!
  2. What went wrong???

    AND, you need to prime over it a bunch. and a good bath. It is a last resort but will work
  3. What went wrong???

    The question was what to use to get the paint off. I agree Acetone is the last resort, BUR, it will remove the paint. Yes, you're going to have to do some minor putty work and alot of sanding but it will work
  4. What went wrong???

    Acetone will take anything off! Just don't soak it in acetone. It will desolve plastic! BUT on a rag you can wipe anything off!

    OK, this is my second time at "Flocking". Don't think it looks too bad. The big spot the drivers side will be covered by the driver's seat. I'll get better. Heard that "embossing powder" works better. Opinions?

    Well, Going to use some Ken's Fuzzy Fur for the carpet. Decided to use the black. Be too much "Red" with the Red or Pink

    LOL. Of course I had to break one in half to learn...

    I put plastic stock as shown in pictures to re-enforce the rockers AND it fills the gap between the frame and body
  10. #2, 1962 Ford Thunderbird

  11. What went wrong???

    I use "Purple Power" from WalMart. It's right at $5.00 a gallon. I use two gallons in a Home Depot bucket. I leave it in the corner of my garage, (detached). I got a collard er, from WalMart, Bent the ends of 2 "Eye" bolts from Home Depot to use as handles. A tea leaf ball, also from WalMart, added a chain from Home depot. Cut a slot in the side of the bucket to hold the Tea Ball, (for small parts). Found a 5 gallon bucket strainer online. i strain the bucket every now and then to clean out the "garbage" in the bottom NOTE: apparently Purple Power goes bad after about a year. Won't strip anything now. Might try that "Super Clean" ya'll are talking about
  12. What went wrong???

    Gentlemen, Thank You. This poor thing has been painted so many times I just give up on it. (losing detail). Will buy ne a new one, but am staying away from rattle cans, de-canning, an enamels altogether. Going to stick with lacquers, and acrylics. Going to try "Gravity " paints. Look good and come pre-mixed. See how that goes
  13. Anybody know why my paint job did this? It was de-canned Testor's "Plum Crazy" enamel. It's turning grey in areas? What went wrong? it was primer ed with Tamyia grey primer, lightly sanded with 600 paper. Can it be saved? was going to clear it in a couple of days.
  14. Advice taken. Good idea. Thanks
