Lacquer Thinner for Stripping Paint

Recommended Posts

Acetone...mixed with 20% water. Dirt cheap, super quick, and safe.


I know what you are gonna say.....But don't say it...TRY IT!

Mix Acetone (I got mine at Ace) with 20% water....To TEST your kit, get a piece of sprue, and SOAK it in your mix.....If you are at 20/80 mix, enamel will fall off in 5 to 10 minutes I tested a resin cab with plastic hood and lower cab section....30 minutes, ALL PAINT and primer gone, ZERO etching...Gramps and Mikey taught me this, and no more Easy off or DOT 3 for me!

Found these pix on another forum...
