Cleaning up Panel Line Accent on Gloss Paint
Posted by Les.61 on Friday, March 8, 2019 8:14 PM

Hi, I have tried using panel line accent (Tamiya) on a car with white gloss paint. I am having difficulty cleaning the overruns from the paint. What do you recommend? Options are enamal thinner, methylated spirits, mineral turpentine (however this stuffs up the gloss paint) or isppropyl alchohol. How long do you leave the panel line accent to dry before doing the cleanup?

I have used enamel thinner, and it works, but is a bit time consuming.  I rub it on with a cotton swab.  By the way, the paint under it should NOT be enamel, as the accent color is enamel based, and will also disssolve if you try to clean it up with enamel thinner.  So far, I have only used the panel line accent over Tamiya spray can lacquers.  I think that is how it is intended to be used.
