No, I didn't use acetone. I used a degreaser and Dawn dish soap. I ran a second heat cycle and a little more is peeling off, closest to the exh port. I thought I cleaned it really well. Apparently not.
Hey Tima, now come your Akra has springs? My black one doesn't (it was one of the deal-breakers for me). Or maybe it's a different model? Does it have the 2 outlets, like mine? Just curious. Anyway, sorry all of your work didn't pay off. Not sure I'm right, since I'm not a painter, but that peeling looks at least in part like a lack of prep. You could give it a second try, cleaning everything perfectly, and finishing with alcohol (and gloves, of course). If not, you'd have to spend the money on a 'jet hot' coat. Good luck.
