Tried it and it was a waste of time for me. The proccess is messy and the results were poor. It was way faster to use a razor blade to remove the paint.

Tried it on a white frame and documented the process in the topic Frankies addict r4 i Believe.
Tldr: lots of effort went into it and the result wasn’t worth it.
