All —

Well, the removal of the black latex paint hasn’t gone too well. Not sure what kind of paint was used, but it’s been almost impossible to get off without damaging the paint underneath. I’ve tried two organic removers and Goof Off. The paint almost looks like the flat black used in stage productions for back stage.

I need to remove the switch labels and the badges (one should peel off and the other has plastic posts that I’ll need to cut the metal rings on the posts). Then, I plan on going at it with the harshest stuff I have and then repaint it. Does anyone know what color was used or have a match recommendation?
