I have a diamondcoat getaway that has several sections of Mylar with dirty edges. It looks like the edges of it are slightly lifted so dirt accumulated underneath. What would be my best way to clean it? Can I remove the Mylar if I have diamondcoat clear underneath?

Appreciate the responses on my getaway. I’m currently reinstalling the rear ramp flap so I have the supercharger out. Might be a good time to freeze off the Mylar in the back and work forward. I’m in the middle of an F-14 restore too but looks like I should probably focus on the getaway since I have it apart now. I’ll grab a can of compressed air from work and try it this weekend. Will let you know how it goes.

Once the Mylar is gone, and I get the glue off with flour and alcohol, should I just wipe the play field down with Naptha and then re wax it?
