Only use the paint remover on the outside of the connector if possible. It should be ok if the paint remover touches that part of the plastic for a short time only. Use a toothbrush to quickly remove the paint. Rinse off with water under a tap. Use a hairdryer to thoroughly dry the ends.
Better to try this than dump the cable for a new one first!
Yes , Dear Kosmic....the paint has gotten onto the gold needle too..and it's surrounding...inner core of the connector..~
thx you for the advise! i'll try it first...before i decide to get a new cable from them...because they do cost $30 USD.
But i guess i'll learn my lesson and make sure the connectors are masked off and then put on a plastic cable sleeve over to avoid this from happening again.By The way , i still have "one" more question. Which primer do i need to apply before i spray paint it on? Metal Primer? and we don't have the Epoxi brand here in Canada. So, i bought a Rust Metal Paint by TrendClad or something like that.
Sorry , just need to add this.
Do i really need to buy some kind of sanding tool to sand the connector a bit before apply the primer?Thanks!
