    I need some help with some info from you guys that do paint and body work. I and trying to do a Satoshi grill and I had a rag with MEK fall on it and it made it sticky. I need to know if I can sand it down enough to get all of it off the paint and repaint it or go ahead and wipe it down with it down to bare plastic. If I wipe it down completely with MEK will it hurt the plasticand ruin the grill.

    I used MEK on my eyelid to take them back down to bare fiberglass to repaint, will it do the same on the plasic

    Just sand down the plastic and repaint
    Dont risk ruining the grill
