Cry Vario cleaning hint

Do NOT use "Whoops" brand paint cleaner on Vario cases. It's like acetone, and works real fast, faster than you can say "Oh shit!"

Aren't those cases modular? Can you just replace the portion that you "cleaned?"

Oh, I didn't melt holes in it. I'll just sand it with very fine paper, but it'll take time.

It was more than dirty. Two days ago, I tried to squeeze past a newly-painted Dryvit wall on a motel in downtown Lynchburg VA. My left pannier smeared the paint. I figured it'd be an easy clean up, but I fucked up instead.

Because of the longer history of the matt plastic on boxers, I posted a follow-up question here: sanding system cases.
