As the title says, I've got some parts I painted with krylon that I'd like to strip without having to buy 5 bottles of brake cleaner.

In short, Im feeling lazy and would just like to soak the parts in something that will break the paint down, and hopefully leave the parts themselves intact.

Both parts are tango down brand...a pistol grip and a VFG.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Scott

It depends on the plastic.

Try contacting Krylon on Monday for suggestions?

use laquer thinner, a scrub brush and elbow grease.

Don't use Lacquer thinner. Most plastics will melt under it. Brake Fluid is what any plastic modeler uses worth his salt. (one of my many hobbies) Let it soak over night in it.

No shit, never even thought about that. Honestly I figured it would mush up the plastic...but well...I guess the reservoirs on cars are plastic too

Break Fluid works.... just its break fluid, kinda nasty stuff.

Simple Green is a longer soak, but it won't kill your cat.

I used Goof Off to remove Krylon form an AR with good success.
