I had thought about that actually... but that would be fairly expensive. But if the sanding doesnt work then i'll just end up dippin it.

I went out and got a can of lacquer thinner and started. Takes a lot of it to get a little bit off, but it works perfectly.

Im gonna buy a spray bottle and see if i can spray it out a little more evenly and less wasteful, stuff has a habbit of drying wayyy to fast.

I'll throw a few pictures up as I go.

Thanks for the idea man!
