    ahaha well you go to your town hall and ask if you can ask for the public works. i didnt only buff graff though, you gotta cut grass and pick up garbage, basically just keeping the city clean.

    today i saw "glass stainer"
    anyone know if its worth racking?

    it was fucking up so i jjust dropped the link. its a work in progress though, im glad it doesnt fade, but it doesnt stain very hard, and is easy to buff if u have more than just alcohol. and its glossy :]

    edit: Ya sooze ya lose

    Carbon you could get from a hobby store that carries chemistry stuff. Or some quality artist charcoal but you need to grind it into a super fine powder.

    PS denatured alcohol is ethanol with a little methanol to make it unpalatable , not isopropanol.

    i only said that cuz in your buff picture you said denatured alcohol (isopropanol) so which was it? not like it matters, but it held up alright to it.
    It was just the xylene and toluene that kicked its ass.
