    hey guys. i just decided i wanted to repaint one of my guns that i made for my optimus prime... just wondering how i would go about taking off the clear coat?

    i used Tamiya paint and i coated it with krylon crystal clear gloss.


    any ideas? i heard people say to sand it down.. but it might be hard cuz so many ridges.. any thing easier like alcohol? rubbering alcohol? i dont mind if watever i use kills the paint cuz i wanna repaint it anway..

    thanks

    I'd recommend a small dose of 91% (or 70%) rubbing alcohol.
