raptor liner cleanup

What would be the suggested solvent to use for cleaning the paint gun?

Acetone or reducer. I've just used reducer I had left over from other paint jobs.

I used acetone, based on what U Pol recommends, but I cleaned the gun immediately after each use, running acetone through the pick up tube and through the gun. I then wiped down the gun with an acetone soaked rag to clean up any remaining bedliner.

If you let it dry in the gun, I think you'll be buying a new gun.

Yep ^^. I was assuming you meant when the gun had just been used. Once it's dry, just like auto paint or POR15, it's there for good.

I concur with Herb and Eric. I used Acetone, and do it right away while the stuff is still wet.

I had gotten acetone for it. I wasnít sure if something special was needed instead. Thanks for the feedback.
