Cleaning solvent


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm having my stripes painted and when it's done, I need to restick my SHELBY letters back onto my trunk.

Anyone have any good ideas of a cleaning solvent besides alcohol? I'd like the surface to be really clean so they don't fall off. Any ideas would be apreciated.

being fresh paint it will already be free of any wax residue or anything real bad for adhesion, but the paint shop prob has some quick drying precleaner to wipe it down with too.

when you pick up the car, tell them what you are planning to do and they may prep it for you.....

 

did you get the stripes painted in silver?

Thanks for the replies guys.

 

Laurence,

Yes, I'm having the stripes painted silver. My paint guy was able to match the stripes to an existing Ford color.

Home Depot sells naptha in the thinner/claner/paint department. Graphic-Express.com changed its recommendation from alcohol to naptha. Works good and fast-dries. G-E tells you to clean ten times and use ten different rags on previously waxed surfaces, but a new one should be clean after three or four, I think.
