Raping The Cars Without Tearing

Recommended Posts

Sorry. Title is very notti. Very Happy Anyhow, here's my question:

What is the best possible way to tear open the cars from the card in the hopes that they can be reattached later, if possible.

Regards,
Wonger

You can use acetone behing the cardboard, like nail polish remover with acetone.
The glue between the blister and the cardboard will disolve and you'll have the car without any rips.
And you can use white glue that dries colorless to put the blister back on the card.

Hmm, some will cut the back of the card, some will make a nice tear at part of the blister.

using acetone wont spoil the card colour?

No because you apply the acetone on the back of the card. It will only desolve the glue.
I got that tip from a customizer who uses that method of opening in order to re-seal the customs in their original blister. But you still have to go carefully, using cotton swab (aka Q-tips).

Nothing happen on the back...let it dry by itself.acetone is a chemical like thinner (senang cakap la...) bt it not too strong.im not sure if kdai hardwre sell it.

Dumb question of the day: what's a D.I.Y. ?? I'm French-speaking and I don't know that acronym!! Embarassed

As for acetone or nail polish remover (make sure it contains acetone, some don't!!), if I remember, you need to soak it...I'll have to check out again Joe's diecast shack...I'm sure the info is there........

You really have to use alot of the acetone. I use a Q-tip or cotton ball to apply. And you might have to do it accouple of times before the glue releases good.
