    @el Gato Gordo

    I use acetone in my CMX and have done so for a long time with absolutely no effect on the ties or any other plastic due to how the acetone is delivered. I have also used it on a...

    el Gato Gordo

    I found it on Amazon also but only as a 6 pack. Home Depot or Lowes will be your best bet from the sounds of it.

    Thanks mate, I can never work out the MT site for trucks. Having more modern trucks works for me as well, so they'll be perfect, thank you.
