Duplicolor acrylic clear lacquer over Tamiya lacquer?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone sprayed Duplicolor Perfect Match acrylic clear lacquer over Tamiya lacquer?  Does it work?

Does the Duplicolor clear come off with isopropyl alcohol? I'm looking for a good shiny clear that will stand up to alcohol (which I use to clean off foil residue and other things).

Unless most paints types are not fully cured, their surface might be affected by high strength alcohols.  As an alternative you might want to try Naphtha (Ronsonol Lighter Fluid or VM&P Naphtha from a hardware store).  It works really well for removing the BMF type of adhesive.

I think Isopropyl Alcohol will remove some of the surface of the clear.  If left on long enough the alcohol will remove the paint.
