Removal of paint
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, April 14, 2003 1:29 PM
Can anyone tell me how to remove the paint from a metal die-cast vehicle.
After the paint is removed, what would you suggest to use as a primer (I use enamel paint).

You can use Simple Green to remove the paint, let it soak a day or two, depending on the type of paint, and it should come off with a light scrubbing. I would use Duplicolor auto primer. Hope this helps. Email me if you need more.

Just put your model in some breaking fluid, every type off paint will come off.
