acetone works, but not on most plastics as will melt or cloud it.. From what i have tried, the GP debonder is plastic safe. Not a scratch or melting on those plastics i've tried it on..

Smile CA Glue Question

I am about to start building my Tamiya 415MS. Would you also place CA glue on the edges of the counter sunk holes on the bottom chassis plate? Or just the edges? I am experiencing glithces on my EVO 4, but just installed the Yokomo Noise killer kit hoping it will help. Thanks.

Clear nail polish works great and is easier to use than CA.

Default CF Question

Although I am not new to racing, I have just ordered my first Carbon Fibre chassis car.
When you glue the edges of the CF, do you just do the bottom deck, or do you seal the top deck and the suspension bulkheads as well.

I have sealed almost eveything.
Just to be sure.
More detailed work only at the bottom deck.
My way for bottom deck: Apply CA and leave deck's edge parallel to the ground.
I do that 4-5 times. Then sandpaper about 800 degrees and then 1200 degrees. Remember to put some water at the sand paper.
NOTE: When you sand it, see if the dust comes of is pure white. This means you are in a good way and you don't sand the carbon!
Finally Metal polish and Dremel. State of the art. (At the end you can see a new edge made of CA but looks like so nice)
That's me!
