    Greetings all,
    I'm in the process of stripping some shells and here is my situation. I'm using Castrol Super Clean but I'm not getting the results I expected. It doesn't seem to work well on factory paint. Now let me say that this stuff is remarkably fast at removing paint that has been applied by me but I have two shells that have been soaking for 36 hours and the factory paint is still holding strong. If there is anyone out there that uses this stuff and can help, I would greatly appreciate the advice.

    Thanks in advance,

    I've used Pine Sol with great results. I'm surprised Castrol Super Clean isn't taking it off.

    Who are the models made by that you are trying to strip paint from? I have Concor freight cars that I haven't wanted to strip the paint off of, but I noticed that they are not painted, the cars seem to be cast in plastic that is the color of the car they wanted to replicate and the only paint would be the lettering.
