Question wing registration

what is the best way in removing the wing registration from the bottom of the wing without damaging the finish on the wing?

Acetone, like nail polish remover?
What is the best "tool" to use, Q-tip, brush, or what?

q-tip... Use one end per brush, or it will smudge.

Is there coroguard inspar as well? I have found that it is also an ink that comes off with acetone.

Yeah, watch for inspar colors etc. Any paint that's not the base color will come off. Example, on a DW plane with an inspar color, reg number, and wing exit arrows etc, acetone or goo gone will remove everything but the base grey color. Never tried on GJ, nor a DW plane whose wings are overall silver. (DC-10's, etc).

Acetone eats styrene plastic too, so be CAREFUL if it's a DW, JX or Herpie!
