Hello all,

Are there any MacGyvers out there?

Thanks

Vegetable oil will free your skin. Fingernail polish remover (acetone) will remove parts, but it can eat styrene as well. Brake cleaner will work as well, same warning.

You are out in the middle of the lake with out a paddle. Nail polish remover just hope it does not affect the plastic piece .
