How To: Stripping Model Car Paint

As hard as we try, we mess up sometimes. Spending hours prepping a body for paint is very therapeutic in my opinion, but it takes a few seconds for a bad paint job to ruin all that hard work we put in before hand! Whether its a reaction, a piece of dust or it gets dropped. There is nothing worse than seeing your hard work go to waste!

There’s also the issue of sanding through when in the polishing stage of a car body, I must get out of this habit!

There is a solution however! I have tried this method on just about every single paint variant available and it strips it without removing any details on bodies or intricate parts. Also its very cheap and easily disposed of unlike brake fluid.

Its a very simple process that can be completed in a day or two depending on how stubborn your paint wants to be, but afterwards your good to go again with the prepping, which shouldn’t take you all that long, just pay attention to the panel lines too when doing this.

Come with me while I show you how easy it is:

What can I do!?!?!?!
