    Dec 6, 2003, 6:34 PM - Cleaning paint off resin? #1

    I recently found a Fett side-arm that I'd bought back in 96 or 97 and had tried to paint to no avail. I wanted to try and strip the primer off it to try and clean up the detail on it. I've been thinking about trying to make a mold of it.

    Does brake parts cleaner hurt resin? If so anyone know of a better way to clean this up?

    Easy off oven cleaner or brake cleaner, with brake cleaner, it has to soak in it.
