I went to wash and scrub the stuff off, all the main chrome stuff came off, but in alot of places, in the nooks and crannys, its a yellow color How do i get rid of that stuff now? ive tried to scrub it off with a old toothbrush but it wont come off.

  11. I have a small jar i made up of it last Saturday. And i was gone all week and came back and the stuff was still ok. I made a fairly big batch of it, and so far its still good. Like this one poster said. their might be air bubbles in it after you sand it down, but nothing a small swipe of regular putty can take care of. This method is really good also if you have a deep sink hole and you want to fill it up. When i made mine. i just cut the sprue pieces up small and put them in the jar, poured a little cement in, enough to cover them up and let it sit. although the curiosity got the best of m
  12. no more dangerous than using it just as a regular glue as far as i know.
  13. Heres the cement I use here it is after the plastic has melted. i gave it about 4 hours ish. the longer u wait the better, just to be sure its all good and melted. here i have put the plastic putty on a couple sink holes. the good thing is, the plastic is the same color.
  14. all you do is put small cut pieces of sprue into a small jar of like testors liquid cement. wait a while, i waited about 3 hours for mine to fully melt. all the plastic sprue pieces you put in will melt from the cement. or take and pour a small amount of the liquid cement into a small jar, i use the small 1/4 oz ones. drop in your sprue pieces and wait. then when its "cured", and all melted ,just dab on a sink hole or whatever and it fills it right up and melts into the surrounding plastic. Then sand and you cant even tell the difference, unlike with putty
  15. ive just found that melted plastic in liquid cement is probably better than any putty on the market! im sure its been said here before but i just wanted to put my worthless 2 cents in.
  16. are those Iwata sprint jet compressors any good?
