Is there a way to strip paint off plastic Hot Wheels and parts? For example, I’ve always wanted to do something with the Vandetta, but it has only ever been cast in see through plastic. I know I can sand it, but I’ll lose some details. Also, other HWs plastics, the solid color bits...I’d like to strip them without melting them.

Next, can any of the photographers recommend a good CFL bulb for photography? I keep trying to order a couple of 300 watt equivalent bulbs from home depot, but for some reason, they aren’t interested in selling me an item that is on their website.

Right now I’m using a pair of 300 watt clear incandescents but I can hear the electric meter spinning faster when I have them on.
