Default A little tip

I am in the process of building an Aleph J. I purchased a chassis and it came with the mfr's. logo on the front (gold anodized) in large black letters.
The mfr. had stated in their Q&A section that isopropyl alcohol would remove the lettering. I tried it and no luck. It then popped into my head that I had recently cleaned a spot on my rug with a spray product called Awesome carpet spot and stain remover (made in the U.S.A). It said removes ink stains amongst others. I tried it and presto, the lettering came off like magic. It is non flammable as well. I don't know, maybe other brands that remove ink spots would work as well.

Use Acetone.
Propanol is no so efficient against non pollar molecules.

I bought a bottle of "pure acetone".
When I got home the small print revealed that one of the ingredients was oil !

the ceratin oil in nail polish remover is good for fingernails but it doesn't effect the acetone's effectiveness or usefulness. pure acetone is hard to find but nail polish remover is widely available.

Yes of course, is your language. But we need your technical teachings about electronic not in nail polish removers.
The thread talk a member that tried isopropanol for keep out a sticker from one faceplate of aleph J.
Maybe in Scotland some body can't use acetone because it has oil.
What I like is to see how Andrew becomes and I see is so easy.
