Hi there folks, This is yet another paint thread, as I've seen a few whilst doing my research. I recently purchased a large haul of transformers. There's some great stuff included so largely I'm thrilled, but a few of them (probably 20%) have been painted over (sometimes the entire transformer, sometimes just parts). Now I've been doing some search time, and I realise this can be tricky, or even impossible to deal with. My only hope is that the paint itself doesn't appear to be vinyl (or whatever it is that is used). It's quite lumpy and doesn't look like it's of great quality. I know absolutely nothing about paint, but I'm guessing it's an acrylic or something like that? Anyway, I may be better off on a paint forum (!) but is there a way I can identify what type of paint it might be? I figured that if I can tell what paint it is then I can see if I can fight it. If it's acrylic I'm going to try Lestoil, and if not I'll go with Easy Off, following what's recommended in the tutorial section on this site. Has anyone used and therefore confirm that these products might help? I just wanted to post this to see if anyone could help (in any way really), as I'm an absolute novice and really want to try and save these guys!
