Good idea there. I never would have thought of that. Make sure to completely remove any thinner residue before any paint!
I certainly will give it a good bath! Got any suggestions, other than soap-and-water?
I would soak it in super clean for a few hours then follow up with a scrubbing of warm water and Ivory dish soap. Ivory was recommended by a professional painter that once posted here because it has no additives in it that will cause fish eyes.
If your not grown up by the time you're 60...you don't have to.

Just my 2cents here on the "right look" discussion above.
Suppose a builder just took a later issue RevelloGram T, painted it yellow, added some 'Coffin wheels and tires then called it a Little Rod. To me, that one while most likely a very nice T build just wouldn't have the "right look" as in representing and authentic scaled down Big Rod. Now, another builder sweats all the little details to make sure the build is a close to perfectly scaled down replica, such as Bob did with his outstanding Little Rod and JB has done with his excellent Little Drag, to me, those would have the "right look".
