I set up two ECMs with DirectScan this past fall. Bother were very easy to do and probably only took about 30-40 minutes each.
To remove the coating on the board, here's what I used:
- Aircraft paint remover.
- Starting fluid.
- A paint scraper.
I sprayed the paint remover on a flat blade paint scraper (looks like a real wide flat screwdriver) and applied it that way to the board. I let it sit for a minute or two then scraped it off with a razor blade and the paint scraper. After about two applications, I then cleaned the board with a couple of q-tips dipped in the starting fluid.
Like I said, both ECMs and DirectScan setups have worked perfect.
Hope this helps.
