I am going to try and remove all the graphics off a spare CLK DTM by Maisto.
I remeber a few people here doing this mod.
Has anyone figured out how to get the tampos off the windshied?

Any areas I need to be careful on while doing the body?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :cheers

Its going to be hard to remove that windshield tampo without leaving residue, I say this from experience.

I would say NPR is going to be the only choice. But be careful as when I used NPR to remove a tampo, it smeared on to the windhsield. While cleaning it up, it left a dull windshield.

Quick question on the "acetone free NPR"...

Does this particular NPR come in certain colors...I have always been confused on that.

Also for removing the tampos off the windshields try using some thick toothpaste and an old toothbrush or your fhumb and apply a little pressure to get it to come off... Ive got pics of a bonnet that I removed the tampos off of with it somewhere... I will post them up or find the link

You will need to support the back of the screen to stop it from cracking with the back of your hand

Thanks Ben!
I thought about trying that.
The one time I tried it I didn't have the best results with the toothpaste and had to clean it up with NPR.
It wasn't a diecast, it was a plastic clock stand with a company logo I wanted to remove.

a toothpaste with baking powder in it (or some paking powder made into a paste) will work well... that is what I used

I bought some NPR today. Apparently, there's the pink solution and blue stuff also. I thought being a guy, blue would be the better choice....until I read the label to see that it was bubble-gum scented. :badidea I didn't think my son would be too happy about his CLK GTR smelling like gum . :lol

Anyway, tonight, my son & I had a blast of a time cleaning off the tampos. :happy We haven't done the windshields yet. The black spoiler and front air splitter has hazed over with a grayish look. :confused The rear bumper fascia has a black mark that is not wanting to come off anytime soon either. :confused :confused It looks like a car left a nasty black bumper mark on it. **grumble** Apart from that, SM Jr thinks the car looks really decent. :happy
