  1. I got two Scorchers in some lucky local purchase back in November 2015. I actually went for a yellow one, and on the e-mail the guy said I could have "a lot of extra parts with it". Quite a surprise he implied a virtually completely 2nd vehicle in rough/dismantled condition! Well last year I had a lot of different stuff to do, and while things are not so different now, I'm finally giving myself the chance to turn to these old VW scalers. I'm particularly happy because just yesterday I did a little test of my old "wet t-shirt" enamel removal method and it took the old paint easily. Now with the older, beat-up one the fight is going to be real complex, as it has like seven coats of different type of paint all over it Last Dec. 2015 I showed you guys my mystery RC project with this picture And these are the cars: Sand Scorcher #1 Sand Scorcher #2 As I said before this one is going to be a total pita to strip: BUT... the yellow paint on the 1st one gave up real quick! Here's how the wet t-shirt method worked: I decided to try some drops of brake fluid on a little area of the VW body with pieces of some old cotton t-shirt. Worked great, paint came out EASY. Wish I knew what type of enamel the original owner used in this one. The t-shirt pieces here: See? I have a reason to be excited. I wanna turn on the airbrush SOON, haha. You all have a good week!
