Having a superior paint job on a radio-controlled car's shell is the difference between a collectable and a child's toy. Painting RC shells requires patience and a practised hand, but even then, errors occur. A flawed paint job doesn't warrant throwing away a shell. Instead, remove the unwanted paint with a few inexpensive household items. With just a bit of elbow grease and a little time, you can have a clean RC shell.

Things you need
- Brake fluid
- Aluminium roasting pan
- Paint brush
- Shop towels
- Mild dish detergent
Place the RC shell upside down in an aluminium roasting pan. Pour approximately three tablespoons of brake fluid, such as Dot 4, into the shell.
Dip a paint brush in the puddle of the brake fluid. Brush brake fluid over the entire shell.
Allow the shell to set for 20 minutes. Gently scrub the shell with an old toothbrush.
Wipe away loose paint with a clean shop towel. Repeat steps 1-4 until the shell is paint free.
Wash the shell thoroughly with mild dish detergent. Rinse the shell with water and allow it to air dry.
