Removing Printed on Graphics from metal car kit

Recommended Posts

I'm building a Testors Metal bodied Dodge Charge police car kit. How do I go about removing the graphics that are already printed on the kit. Thanks in advance, Dan

Believe it or not, i have used Fingernail polish remover. and or diluted acitone. [however you have to dilute the acitone a lot. and be sure you do not get any on plastic parts.]

use a cloth with the remover on it. just dampening the cloth a little to go over the desired locations and graphics

it will take the cover paint graphics off while the base coat remains intact.

 

just go over the body with a wet piece of paper towel. and work it til you see it start to desolve. then keep going until you have wiped away all the graphics.

then you can also take off the body paint with soaking the body in brake fluid,

let it soak for a few days with all plastic parts removed.

then go over the kit with a soft brush until you have nothing but bare metal showing .

 

hope this will help.
