A few weeks ago I put an oil-turpentine wash on an ejection seat but when I tried removing the excess, all the future and underlying paint (MM enamel) came off with it! So I figured, "wow this stuff must be good for stripping paint" and I tried just that today. I filled a small plastic cup with the turpentine and put a pilot (which had been painted months ago, again MM enamel) in and sure enough, the paint started flaking away. After a while I decided to take the pilot out but when I tried opening the platic lid, turpentine somehow splashed everywhere without it even being open! It was immediately evacuated to the backyard and after an hour or two I came back and discovered that the turpentine had actually melted the plastic cup! The poor pilot is now covered in the stuff What is this evil turpentine!? Did the devil make it himself??!
Anyways, what can I do to avoid the turpentine from eating away the future? I also found out that Solvaset eats away future so would multiple coats solve both of these issues?
As for the melted cup, I'll just use glass ones from now on.
