    Just in case you boys don't know it....... I mean...... I know how much you love long fingernails....... but just in case.......

    Most nail polish anymore is "non-acetone" because the acetone eats the acrylic that we put on our nails to make them longer.

    You need to read the labels carefully and get the stuff that says it contains acetone....... usually has a warning not to use it on acrylic nails.

    Just thought I would share......... I'm sure you already knew this though...:biggrin_25522:

    And a bottle of pure acetone is stronger than the nail polish remover. Nail polish remover is diluted.

    My only fear with the acetone is that if it drips on the trucks paint job it will probably do some damage....... I don't know if it will eat down to the paint but I am fairly sure it will eat off the top shiny clear coat on top........ it will probably eat away at any rubber seal it might drip on as well......... that stuff is not mild.......:biggrin_25523:

    The Acetone will not hurt a clear coat finish, but it will discolor a single stage paint. I use it all the time to take decals off of cars that I resell.

    I try to keep it in one place because all of those stickers look to tacky.I could not get mine off so i just put one on top of the other just in case i might have to sell due to all the monetary increase in this industry and about everywhere else.

    A little diesel fuel might work. My husband uses it to remove a lot of stuff, including decals and old IFTA stickers.
    Straight acetone might do the trick. I was told by the glass tinting guys that it's very effective in taking the tint off windows.

    WWII flame thrower works wonders, I hear.
