Strip paint from B&W G3? - 09/01/08 01:48 AM

Hi all, great mods on here btw!

I recently sprayed up my old B&W G3 so it was Black & White like one of the mods on here, which looked ok. But I wanted to change the colour. Any ideas on stripping the paint off, or is it just best to spray over the top? I dont want to spend stacks of money on alcohol or whatever might be best to do it with, but I would like to strip it off and start again if its possible. ANy help appreciated!

Thanks.

Oh, and nobody has the old B&W or Graphite G4 drive bezel lying around have they? I need the DVD Drive, the outer bezel and the bottom drive bay blanking plate. Thanks!

Ok, as its been quiet I guess theres no easy way so I'm just going to sand down what I have previously painted and spray silver over the top. Maybe I'll post some pics up when im done...

Yep, it's gonna be sandpaper. Anything you can use to strip the paint off is going to melt the plastic. Don't forget that you don't have to sand it too much unless you have like 20 coats of paint and clearcoat thicker than Egon Spengler's glasses.
