about removing their paints, but they didn’t say anything about

I don't know about resin but some brake fluids will make some
plastics brittle. Yes that is a vague statement however the results
are inconsistent. This has been discussed a lot on the Diesel
list with the conclusion that grit blasting, 91% isopropyl
alcohol and oven cleaner are the safest methods, in that order.
I have used alcohol on Accu+paint and Star (PBL) on plastic
with good results. I have not tried it on resin.
