I crawled out from under the car today and it pretty much looked like I had taken a bath in POR15. I have read countless posts about people not being able to get POR off their skin. So as I love to do, I went to work trying to figure out the "impossible"(not really). The end result: some laquer thinner and a little elbow grease. Hopefully this will help you "old guys"(joking of course) who are trying to figure out a way to avoid going to the office for the next week with POR on your skin.

that only works if its semi wet

i did find acetone to be promising.. but you have to let it sit. When i cleaned off the stuff to prep for another coat i used brake cleaner, worked good except in the areas that it puddled it got all soft and stuff... oops

Maybe the only alternative once it's dry is to pour on some POR stripper or metal ready! err, nah, not a good idea. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif There has to be some way! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

I learned the hard way to wear surgeon's gloves when handling POR15 and where a mask when shooting it. I, like you, discovered lacquer thinner and a lot of elbow grease will get if off, if you do it right away ... and if you spray it without a mask and your teeth turn all black, you can brush your teeth with lacquer thinner and a rag to get them clean /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif. (I wonder how many years I took off my life with that bozo mistake *LOL*).
