    Removing paint from body

    Here is a question for the body guys. Is there a way to remove the paint from the inside of the body? And a follow up, how can you buff out scratches on the outside of of the shell?

    I learned something the hard way too, Water based paint on a body in the mud IS NOT VERY FUN!

    Pactra makes a paint thinner that works on their paint.

    I reject your reality, and blow it up with C4.

    The thing that I want to do is modify my stock slash body. Can I buff out the scratches on the outside as well?

    Try using motor cleaner and a rag on the outside of the body to remove scuffs. It works but you do have to scrub it pretty hard.

    I have used all different kinds of brake fluids... none worked for me, they took tiny bits of paint off, but left the shell cloudy and blotchy :/ not happy

    Buying a new shell is the only way IMO as of today.
