For awhile now I’ve been claiming that I’m going to paint a giant red stegosaurus on the front of my white nissan altima. I really do intend to do it. I have the contact paper which will act as the stencil, the bright red paint, and the clear coat paint. What I’m missing is the method of first sanding off the top coat of paint.
I was discussing possibilities with the roommates. The problem is, I don’t want to sand the whole hood and repaint it because I’m lazy. Really, I just want to sand down the area of the stegosaurus. Here were the two ideas:
1. The Bologna Maneuver: Jesse reports that bologna, if stuck to a car, will remove the paint. I could put down the stencil, and then cover that area with bologna… leave it for a few hours, remove the meat, wash lightly, and then paint bright red.
2. The Egg Drop Classic: Thomas pointed out that egg whites do the same thing. I could paint the defined area with eggwhite and leave it for a few hours, then wash lightly, then paint.
So dear Reader, what do you think I should do to best paint my majestic stegosaurus?
