thinner. there's a spray thinner that you can buy from autozone/pepboys/ something like that. its great.

or you can sand that piece, though you will remove every layer of color down to the color of the material used to make the plastic. thumbsup


I've mastered the art of the After Image Technique.

I think that laquer thinner would be the best thing to use...

strip every piece off
