Subject: [Saab_c900] how to remove silicone sealant off paintwork. 8-)


Hi everyone, My 4 y/o daughter smeared some silcone sealant over the paintwork of the 1985 900i I'm fixing up two days ago and I've noticed today because she put it on the back of the boot lid which I haven't needed to look at until just now (checking in the boot to get some spare parts out of a box)! How can I remove the silicone (which is now fully cured!) without ruining the paint? Will something like acetone work? I'm not keen on using any physical device to remove it since it'll be next to impossible to avoid scratching/damaging the paint layer. Any ideas appreciated! I'll grab some pics with the digital camera and put them online later on today (will give the link when that's done). 8-) Thanks, Craig. -- Craig's Saab C900 Page --> http://nospam/~c900 Sydney, NSW Australia Craig's Classic Saab Workshop -- For Saab 99/C900/9000 Enthusiasts world-wide! http://www.nospam.net http://www.nospam c900nospam.apana.org.au Come and explore our site, and check out our web-forums, mailing list, etc.
