Think I win the award for most posts in a WIP without any pics.
After a bit in brake fluid, I wasn't getting anywhere.
91% alcohol was the answer. Within about an hour it was coming off very quickly. The only slight problem was it also attacked the glue and whilst cleaning the white metal for the roll over hoop went down the drain! I was able to stop it before it went through the pipes though so that was a disaster averted.
There was a fair amount of a gap on several parts. I puttied it up but would eventually have some issues.
After the first coat the car was still pretty yellow.
And there was a big gap on the flip ups. At least the front wing mount and airbox was in good shape! This is actually the better side too.
After the second coat the white primer was looking a lot better.
The flip ups also look better. Its not perfect, but it isn't as terrible as before. I'm going to spray some more this afternoon as well as get on the bottom of the body.
Not pictured is the rest of the car parts being primered as well. The biggest area I have some concerns about is the barge boards. I need to manage some complex curves with them, and I'm not exactly sure how to do that. I started to primer the flat piece...but obviously that isn't going to work with the curves I need to make. Any tips are appreciated.
