Hi All,

Couldn't turn up any solid answers with lots of searching..

I have a 96 Dynamic White EF sedan, and am going to remove the black strips from the sides.

Just need to know if the paint is acrylic or 2pack, as it will determine whether I can use a caramel wheel to get all the sticky crap off after the strips have been removed.

Thanks

Good to hear mate, any tips for using it?

Do you use the edges of it or the flat front against the paint?

Also did you have to do anything in preparation?

Thanks mate
