Inner fender plastic shields
« on: April 04, 2021, 01:52:22 PM »
I am trying to clean up my shields.They had some old undercoating on them.I tried lacquer thinner and that did not do much.The undercoating is just in certain areas not the whole thing.I was going to try paint remover.Any ideas out there.Thank you.

Varsol or a paint remover. I always give them a thin coat of flat black afterwards to freshen them up and give them a uniformed appearance. :alan2cents:

A lot of times if you can twist the piece the undercoating will separate and you can pick most of it off.

This is what I found easiest.  Couple twists,  most can be peeled out.

The undercoating on mine is like tar.It is not dried out.I used goo gone spray and lacquer thinner.Man it is messy.Got one done and painted.Almost done with the other one.New ones are 300 bucks with shipping.You can buy a lot of paint stripper for that.

Don't use flat, not even close, the bare plastic is way closer to satin than flat.
