i was also told that thinner works well but, i need to work out arm before taking one the job. lol

i'll start with 1000 grit and see what happens. if i can paint over it than i'll just go down to napa and buy priemer and oem color, then go to town on a fresh paint job.

If you do go with thinner...Only wipe in one direction and depending on what kind of thinner you use...Stay away from the rubber...The thinner may melt it.

the thinner i plan on using is the same as what i use to clean my spray gun, so it may be rubber safe. I will try to stay away from rubber though.

Try acetone (I think that's how you spell it.) I use this stuff at work and it took off spray paint that I used. You can get it at ace I think

Just to be clear.. After youre done the clear will be gone.. Theres probably a way to keep the lear with a finer grit though like 800 or something.. I wish i had more pics to show you it leaves the paint kind of dull

i understand the clear would be gone,

now, I was woundering if i can paint over the spray paint? I would have to scuff it up. Then, premiered so i can paint it using automotive paint.
