1) Have a glass fibre cowl which I wanted to refurbish. Difficult to clean up by hand. Put it through the dishwasher (along with the usual crockery etc) result – beautifully degreased and ready for sanding and repaint.
2) Same cowl repainted using artists acrylic paint plus two coats of two-part fuel proofer. Not yet tried in flight with 10% nitro fuel but expect it to be O.K.
