Quote from: Partyline4 on November 09, 2018, 12:59:56 PMJust thought I'd add this - sorry if someone has already!Believe it or not GASOLINE is an excellent paint remover! Just got in a AE 50 covered in white paint, and it took every bit of it off with a cotton cloth and very light pressure. Dissolves it on contact without harming the bakelite....Followed by Doug Rose's SSS method produces a great result, as the gasoline really removes oils and grease from the bakelite surface.....Looks great to meIf you can handle the smell!

Not only is it dangerous, Citrix stripper will peal the paint off Bakelite and you can use steel wool to help. You picked a good day to give up smoking. The Marlboro and the phone will not be good friends.The only method that is mine is the Avon SSS......Doug
