Read the rules:

Myself, and the other mods have been very nice and lenient with the rules. We have been deleting threads, and giving out warnings. Some members didn't get the clue and re-posted over and over... Now ANY member buying or selling in this section will be banned... No IF's AND's or BUT's.

Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

The rules for the overall forum can be found here:
Read them. You will be expected to follow them.

    Remove Spray Paint from car

    So I just go another cb7. Mechanically it's fairly sound. It just needs some cosmetic help. the previous owner decided to spray paint the stock mirrors and part of the taillights black. I prefer a stock look and want this paint removed. What is the best way to remove the spray paint? I am fully prepared to go to my scrap yard and get new mirrors if needed but I know they don't have any 2 door models for me to take taillights from.
    Does anyone else have a monthly budget of 10mm sockets or is it just me?

    I was able to remove primer from a bumper (the paint actually just peeled off) using just rubbing alcohol. Brake cleaner might do it, but not sure if it will harm the plastic. Same thing for paint stripper (assuming you don't want to remove the correct color underneath).

    What color? Edit: This is the beginner section, so no buying/selling. You have enough posts to go to the classifieds.

        i've had good luck with mineral spirts on plastic lenses. as for a painted surfaces, you can try paint thinner, mineral spirts, or goof off. always be sure to do test spots. later.
