    when i use those sticks you use in your ear with some nail remover with acetone (smell really bad)the first seconds it boils a bit but after a vieuw minutes it doesnt seem to effect the varnish at all
    i had a carefull look and there seems to be a lot of original paint in it left as you can see on the pic.
    when i use real ammonia pait remover it works but the pait gets very matt is that normal?
