    I found a few old bottles of Floquil in the back of my cabinet. I don't want to buy a container of Diosol because I hardly use Floquil anymore. Is there any other type of thinner that will work?

    Jim's right, Loco. I've heard Floquil described as an enamel, but it works well with high-quality lacquer thnners. I've used Sherwin-Williams automotive lacquer thinner and I almost always use acetone now except for Scale Coat. The acetone dries out faster and makes cleaning up easy, too. :wave:
