      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Stripping Testors Enamel

4 posts in this topic

Posted

I know this question has been asked a million times, but here goes...... I have a frame I painted with Testor's Gloss Black Enamel out of the rattle can and I'm not happy with the results. What is the best way to strip it without damaging the part? Is Simple Green effective?

Testors paint is fairly easy to strip, Purple Power, Castrol Superclean, LA's Totally Awesome, and oven cleaner are some of the many options. I imagine Simple Green would work, try testing it on a scrap piece of plastic to be sure it is safe first.

Simple green is VERY effective on Testors spray enamel spray paint. The ONLY thing I've ever seen it NOT effect was ANYONES Flat Black paint. Don't ask me why, but it WON'T take it off! I use 91% alcohol for that. HTH :D;)

Here's a photo of parts I stripped with LA's Totally Awesome. Almost all of these parts were painted with Testors black enamel.
