    Sorry if this is an old question. I searched the archives and saw that some posters had mentioned using rubbing alcohol to rub off the battle damage on the 20th Anniversary Masterpiece Prime. Just wondering if it'll damage the chrome or the paint.

    Thanks for your input, everyone.

    I haven't done it myself but I've read form ppl who have tried that it does strip the Autobot logo so be careful on his shoulder.

    Yes and yes, it will damage both!! If you are very VERY careful you can get it off. But be more careful with the chrome abs.. alcohol will dull them.

    Thanks for the responses and warnings. Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for something besides alcohol that could work as well without the damage potential.

    nothing that I could think of, just be sure to use a low percent alcohol, and you should be fine. Because no matter what you use, there's the potential for the damage... the battle damage apps are still paint like the other parts.. well.. not the chrome.. that's, well, chrome.. anyway, off the subject there, not matter what ya use, you runt the risk, the safest bet is to use a low percentage alcohol, and start slowly!! Use Q-tips on the shoulder, and for the grill, just be sure no to press down to hard. Hope that helps a bit.
