Grettings and salutions ye who are far wiser than me...
I seek your consultation on the matter of a DP '95 recast lid and utilization of thinner on said helmet.
Basically I aquired a lid off e-bay recently and it arrived in far rougher condition than I had hoped (I wanted at least 1 bucket to work on while I wait for my metal one to be cast). It is going to need some bondo and some sanding work... but I've come to discover there are just too many **** layers of paint on this bucket to make sanding the "quick" course of action to get to a pre-bondo-needed condition.
Therefore I pose the question: Can I utilize a paint thinner or remover to said fiberglass bucket without doing damage to its structure? Or... is sanding the only way to accomplish this task before moving to the bondo blemish-fixer stage?
I leave this inquiry in your capable hands oh geniuses of the Mandalorian garb!
Thank you all in advance for your time and knowledge.
