Picked up some extra KLINE NCDOT passenger cars. Would like to rename and renumber them in order to have more cars with different names in the same train.
So, what is the best way? Switchline Decals has the letter sets so that is one problem solved but what about the paint?
It appears that the names and numbers are pad printed, so I assume the old Solvaset softening trick probably won't touch them. Find the closest paint patch, mask tightly and just paint over, then reletter?
I have used Mr Clean Magic Eraser and 1000 grit sand paper to remove letters, but inevitably you will have dull spot. I don't want to totally repaint, if that's the only option they can stay as is.
