ok sorry i know its been awhile, i suddenly got busy with school. i currently have the sides off and am attempting to remove the paint. the middle is easy because the alcohol just sits in a pool there and after awhile the paint just wipes off. the corners are harder though because they are higher and the alcohol doesn't get to them. ive tried cutting paper towels to fit the insides and pouring the alcohol on them but it always evaporates too fast and by the time I check it its dry again. ive gone through a half of a bottle of 90% isopropyl. so thats where i am on the progect right now.
finally got all the paint off the side panels. For the corners I ended up propping the panels up with a stick and soaking one corner at a time in alcohol in small saucer made from the bottom of a Styrofoam coffee cup. I should post some pics. It looks like some kinda weird deadfall trap. then I waxed the panels with carwax. It took care of some of the scratches but not all of them. I think I am going to try one of those eyeglass/cd scratch remover products if that doesn't work im just going to leave it like it is.
