    well i found this out by accident a couple of months ago. anyways i found out future will remove tamiya clear colors if you soak the piece for a few days or hours, and i mean completely remove the paint even if it is cured i have not tried it on testors acrylic clears yet it will probably work to. i do doubt that it will work on enamel clear paints though. i am unsure if it will remove opaque or solid color paints as well it might.

    Cool news Anovasinn :thumb 

    And wait a minute....you mean Future really is a floor wax?....well who would have thunk it?!...

    Here I thought is was a paint sealer for custom toys...just in disguise as a floor wax....

    :tongue:

    While the topic of future is up, how long do you all wait for it to be at full strength? and how many coats.

    I covered my powerglide in future (first time I have used it) trying to give him an extra hard coating so he isn't a victim of rub. I did three light coats.

    did you use an airbrush or a hand brush? either way three coats is probably enough.

    hey bro if you want a bottle i could send you some at cost. meaning i would not try to profit from it.

    Thanks, but don't worry about it - I actually have a pretty decent clearcoat, as it happens. We muddle through... ;)

    I airbrushed it, it just doesn't seem as a hard coating as people were making it out to be.

    its very tough man, its made for walking on. :lol  I usually just brush on one single coat on mine, but it won't be a full strength for probably 48 hours or so.
