    I am trying to remove decals from some R.I.D. TF and need help. I am trying to remove the Japanese writing off of Prowl's doors and I am trying to remove the flame decals from Sideburn. I have tried the usually alcohol method to no avail. I hate the idea of repainting them concidering they are the colors I want just without those decals. Any suggestions?

    I sometimes use erasers, but I don't think it works for everything, not to mention it takes a while. I use paint thinner, Testors, and it works pretty good, but it'll remove pretty much all paint easily, so make sure you only remove the paint you want to

    I just realized that I had an RiD Prowl back some years ago...

    I don't have a clue where it could be and I doubt it is complete >_<, damn that thing was pretty cool too.

    Sorry to be off topic, just one of those sudden realization things.

    Anyways, maybe nail polish remover?
