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 damn 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.
