    WHY? do some woman react like that? Though your second line could be classified as 'careful what you wish for!' Pyre at Smithfield? Na, that was reserved for the female, you'd be 'hung, drawn and quartered' my lad! Paul

  12. Restoring Old Paint

    Peter, I bow to your experience as an analytical chemist! Knew about Benzene, that's been a know carcinogen for decades. From (limited) use of Toluene, I have first hand knowledge of the headache's it can cause, sadly, never experienced the 'excitement' ! As for the rest, not 'nice' products. May be worth contacting Rustin's direct, to ask if they do the Humbrol type thinners in larger containers? Paul
  13. Restoring Old Paint

    Hi Peter, as your an analytical chemist would the xylene thinners be a better bet? Rustins recommend it for regeneration of paint, so while it may not be the same as they manufacture for Humbrol, it seems it may do a similar job? If so, the tool centre are advertising it at £6.35 for 500ml! Paul
