    Important lesson learned

    I had to paint a couple bodies this weekend, so I figured I'd do like the old days, and give them a squirt of brake cleaner, and wipe dry.

    Yeah, no matter what Kevin Talbot says, DON'T DO IT. Fortunately, these are bash bodies, and not my last 1/16 Fiesta body, or I'd have been really ticked. Stick with Dawn or Simple Green.

    I find your lack of teepee disturbing.

    I painted a stampede body Friday . Washed it with dish soap Thursday night, hit it with a scotchbrite pad and wiped clean with a lint free tech wipe just before I laid down my first tack coat.
    Sorry you had to ruin a body. That’s always a huge disappointment and an unnecessary expense .

    They're not totally ruined. They just look a bit...rough. For bashing, they're fine. I'll just remember to use Simple Green or Dawn to clean the next body.
