Article about: If I rub that helmet with a cloth with acetone, firstly little spots of the red paint vanish. So I have to continue with rubbing. But when I do that, I rub away the original colour in those
do not use acetone on the decals i would use paint stripper BUT dab it on & as soon as it starts affecting the red paint wash it off be extremely careful if you dont want to loose any decals that may be remaining under that paint!!!!!!!!!!
dont worry about the shine, try it on your other helmet but a small piece at a time & soon as you seen the stripper working use the plastic scrapper to remove the paint & wash off to stop the stripper from doing its job just take it slow & all should be fine
Hi again....I tried it with the paint stripper on my M35. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but the red paint is sometimes not removable whereas the original one vanishes.
Or do you think that the guy who painted it red tried to remove the green paint first and then gave it up? And now I think that I'm removing it?
not sure why this is happening not unless the red paint has some how affected the original paint some how & weakened it. i know if left to long the stripper will remove the original paint as well but as long as your careful it shouldn't do this sorry mate not sure what to say very odd ??????
