Car makers went to other types of paints to retain the gloss because people don't like to wax etc to keep a car looking good. As they say different strokes for different folks.

    Lacquer thinner IMO is stronger than acetone and it is what I think you should try. Lots of paper towels and start wiping it away.

    Oh shoot. I was a little late eh ?

    Glad to see your progress and the apparently undamaged factory paint; the finish looks great. What did you use to scrape away the softened rattle can paint? I have used the edge of a plastic credit card and finish with 100% cotton rag with good results. I notice you're using the same heavy nitrile gloves that I have. Kudos on all of it.

    Luckily no scraping needed. Just a bag of rags and worked in small sections and the spray paint came off relatively easy.

    Just monotonous but made easier knowing that it was helping my friend get out of a slump.

    He was in Chicago burying his mom when the bike was stolen so he was knocked back a little. After I did the front fender he could see that it wasn't going to be all that bad and he was motivated to get at it.

    Glad it's working out. Don't forget the rear shock covers....

    Funny, I don't think it looks bad Black.... If It was a better job... Gloss black would look hot.

    Nice going Ed. That looks like a lot of tedious work.

    Sure looks that way.
    Also looks like that rim has a pretty good ding in it ....

    Probably from hopping curbs and beating on it.

    Were you able to fix the rim or will it have to be replaced? Bike looks good!

    Not my scoot so I'm not putting any more effort into it.

    But there are two dents in the rear rim.
