    I have brought back some helms from overpaints. I use lacquer thinner on a q-tip and roll it over the area. I also sponge it on with a paper towel and blot it....
    I should have been a lot more careful with this decal by doing it slower, working in smaller areas over and around it. Something to think about for next one if the opportunity arises.........
