I've been looking for ways to remove the top layer of paint on my son's cub 123. The paint color is wrong and it looks to be a simple rattle can job. I've removed some of the paint and you can see that it still has the original IH yellow underneath.
When I searched the web I found all kinds of suggestion including acetone, reducer, lacquer thinner, sanding, oven cleaner, goof off, razor blades, and rubbing compound.
I tried rubbing compound by hand. That didn't do anything. I tried lacquer thinner and it removed the top layer of paint but it also made the IH yellow paint "gummy". I hate the way the top layer of paint looks and I don't want to repaint this tractor for now because I would like to keep it mostly original.
My question is "What works for removing paint without damaging the bottom layer of original paint?"
