ej189, I love that angry bird canopy! That looks great!

I've got an old stock canopy that is broken in a few places. Because visibility is a problem with the red/black color, I thought I'd try to see if I could take the paint off and repaint it. I tried acetone... nope. I tried denatured alcohol... nope. I tried lacquer thinner... bingo! It pulls the paint right off. Now, I can paint the inside of the canopy and still have it look nice and shiny. Someday, I'd like to try vacuum forming a new canopy with a different shape. I took these pictures to show how far the frame and receiver go into the canopy. Kind of interesting.
