I just stripped my 1964 Impala in purple power. It had two primer coats of Testors model master primer and three coats of Testors model master black metallic. It sat for about 24 hours and I'm happy with the results. However, it didn't appear to get through the primer. The car is currently soaking in water and dawn dish detergent. My question is this; Do I sand the body back to plastic or am I able to spray it with Duplicolor primer/sealant? Thanks for any and all help! This is my first model back after a 14 year hiatus. I've got 40 more kits waiting for their chance to be built and displayed.
So, everyone seems to have their favorite method of Chrome Removal that works great for your needs. The question is, "Do you leave the Clear Coat on spray over it or do you Strip It Clean?" Why do you leave it on or why do you strip it bare naked? Those who leave the Clear Coat on, how about sharing your reasoning. Look at the Chrome Stripping thread some do and some don't. Most didn't say one way or the other why they do what they do, they were explaining how they removed the chrome itself. For me I prefer the naked parts as a foundation to refinish either with the appropriate metal or paint finish.
