Old paint and glow fuel
I bought a 9 year old plane that's been running 10% glow fuel. The paint looks to be enamel, maybe acrylic but I don't think so. The paint finish looks like it was thick at some point and has some surface cracks. Thats not the problem, the paint on the bottom is kinda gooy and soft in some places. When I clean it, some comes off down to the glass finish underneith.
Is there a way to clean it, stabilize it, then repaint? This is a well detailed Don Smith B-17 with lots of rivets that I don't want to damage. The clear coat will be klass coat.
