Repainting a body kit question
I have a Wings West kit on my old Celi that is painted Red. If I was to take that off and get it painted for my Silver Celi, how much work are we talking about?

I am thinking about doing the uninstallation and getting rid of the old paint. What would I be using to get rid of the old paint anyways?
