    not to sure about spray cans but i do know that laquers shouldnt be sprayed over enamal because it sometimes causes the enamal paint to lift. i do automotive paintwork and laquar is a hotter paint than enamal. i repainted a couple of models that had been sitting around for a while already painted and decided to spray them with a laquar paint when i did the enamal had a reaction with the laquar and started to lift. but like i said im not to sure about spraycans.

    i think 62rebel is right, sounds as though the metallic flakes were popping out of the binder. i wouldnt scrape the body just yet, first i soak the body in castrol superclean for a few hours, then take an old toothbrush and scrub the body throughly. ive used superclean for stripping models for years now and havent had a problem yet. it doesnt hurt the plastic and leaves all the body details. make sure to wear gloves and safty glasses.

    thanks for the info barbo. i was at the hobby store after i wrote this, and i noticed that the styrene that i have been buying comes in different patterns like v-groove siding and all kinds of rods and tubing. it says for architectural and military so i was wondering could that stuff be used?

    new guy saying hi and have a question
    my name is james and i just joined the forum, wanted to say hi to everyone. been lurking around for awhile before i joined and kinda noticed something, which brings me to the question. does the majority of the people on this sight only build hot rods and muscle cars? i build a vast selection of cars and trucks, muscle, hotrod, lowriders, trucks, and tuners. right now im building an acura rsx and i havent noticed alot of tuners on this sight. kinda looking for new ideas for mods. just a question really love the sight. once again hi to all.
