Removing painted stripes from track?
#1

Anyone got experience with removing paint from Scalextric track pieces? I have used start lane pieces in the middle of the track and want to remove the paint. 

Suspecting that solvents might damage the plastic? 

Thanks in advance!

I did it, for a similar reason, but it was 10 years ago now and my memory isn't the best.  Try laying a piece of plain white kitchen roll on the track, dribble meths or isopropyl alcohol onto the paper and leave it for 5 minutes.  Then remove the paper and rub at the print with Scotchbrite, or similar.
