Primer Removal

3 posts in this topic

Hello everyone... I've finished my first re-paint and it looks great! But, in prepping the lure I primered the bill thinking I wanted to paint it. After painting and clearcoating with devcon 2 ton. I decided the clear bill will really make the colors of the lure stand out even more. Since I didn't clearcoat the bill I just rubbed off the paint(createx) but not quite sure how to get the primer off the bill without ruining the lure....any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Here's the lure...I know it isn't that great, but I'm happy with the results. Sorry for the crappy camera phone picture.

The only solvents I know that remove some kinds of primer without clouding the plastic on a bill are denatured alcohol or naphta.
