HA HA,I used nail polish remover too I didn't have any isopropyl so i used that,They only problem is you have to wipe it down really good after cause it leave's a little bit of residue crap.

The first time I ever did it, I scraped the old stuff off with a razor blade. Worked like a charm, but I wouldn't try it again.
