    I was stripping the paint off of Skids for a repaint and I found the most easy way to remove paint from Alts. I was able to remove all the paint from the clear plastic. All you need is a corse towel or regular scratch pad (you know, for washing dishes?). A cheap bottle of rubbing alcohol from wal-mart. Run the painted areas under scalding hot water for about a minute, and then dip your towel or pad in the alcohol. and rub hard on the area you want striped......one or two sessions and,viola ! all done ! HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU AS WELL AS IT HAS FOR ME.

    Excellent tip, vector, thanks!
    I have two customs planned using Skids, and this little trick will come in quite handy on both of them.
