    Thanks

    ^^^X2...and don't get the "eco" friendly option. It isn't HAMB friendly.

    I had a similar question on here some time ago and many suggested EZ off. They were right and it worked well.

    Scrape off with single edge razor blades, keep using new ones until done.

    Ditto for the E-Z Off! It works like a charm.

    EZ OFF works of a factory finish without hurting the paint but I have seen it bite into many types of sprayed automotive topcotes. So if your car has been repainted be very careful.

    Thanks !
    Guess i need to find out what type of paint was used to paint the car
    all over, kinda looks like a flatner has been added to make it a primer
    type navy blue.
    Stay tuned, going to try a spot and see.

    Use very short brissels. I cut a real cheap 1/2” brush with it cut to 3/8”-1/2” brissels...
     
  12. I have used lacquer thinner, I've never used easy-off to remove one-shot but I have used lacquer thinner, the process is slow but it is less likely to damage/dull the cars paint. HRP

    I would like to see a video sometime with someone using the easy off and or razor blades.
    I have used razor blades to take the paint off a couple whole cars for the most part but they were also getting sanded and a repaint.....I would be very uneasy and skeptical about using a razor blade on top of good paint I wanted to keep??? they will make a scratch and a gouge here and there.....I have also used the plastic blades you can get at the paint store....maybe they would be better for something like that, or maybe not as they seem to be just as sharp???
