I can't find any virgin lacquer thinner that will dissolve plastic cups for my sealer anymore. Pep boys or Auto Zone doesn't carry the brand that I used in the past. (it came in a green, teal color gallon can) I have tried other brands that were virgin lacquer thinner but they don't work. Is there any other solvent that will work just as well? I live just north of Pittsburgh PA if anyone knows where I can find the good s#$&. Thanks

You should be able to find the VLT in the automotive section of Wal-Mart. Quarts and Gallons.
I never found a good quality plastic cup or plastic utensil that would hold up good. They look great and will waterproof but the slightest impact and it shatters like glass.

Check back with PepBoys and ask if it is behind the counter.
My Auto Zone store said they had to hide it because dope makers (Meth) were using it and they had to screen who got it.

It will dissolve plastic and dope makers are using it to make Meth?? (place expletive of your choice here)

In my country (Romania) there is no acetone available in shops, and I hear that's because the acetone can be used to make dope. Factories which use acetone in their technological process (shoe factories, for instance) have strict regulations concerning the use of the product, and they are controlled in this respect by the police (that's what I heard).
So I'm happier to use virgin lacquer thinner to dissolve plastic, and for my needs, the product is better than acetone (so I could get a little acetone anyway, to compare )

Sure makes you want to run right out and smoke some Meth don't it.
