need to remove paint?

Postby Tortron » 16 Jan 2005, 09:56

i suggest using heavy duty oven cleaner. it will strip paint better than most paint strippers (as well as your skin if your not careful) and is cheep. its also real good for exposing older paint layers, like if someones painted over the original paint.

Good point, but I have found myself considering doing the same as the chrome on my rear bumper is badly pitted. If the chrome underneath the silver paint is still good then I can think of no reason for painting over it.

brakefluid, if the car is painted in laquer.

Postby LabRat » 29 Jul 2005, 17:24

Yes, this actually works... If your car is painted in laquer paint, brakefluid will eat through it very quickly. You just need some heat. IF not, Proform sells a slowacting but very powerful paintstipper in a gallon size can or in a handy spraybaum size can.

The gallon is called PF747 Aircraft Paint Stripper. It is safe to work on steal and amuminum. Take very strong care to wash immediately if trying to strip plastic parts.

The spraybaum is called PF535 Sprayable Paint Stripper. Basically the same stuff is 747, but a little slower.

I sell this stuff to bodyshops all across Ontario Canada. Great stuff, and very inexpensive. Kinda dirty to work with though... and stinky too.

Dasic is another very powerfull paint striper that will workon anything. Its used on aircraft and is extreamly strong, if you get it on your skin sash it off immediately as it WILL burn your skin. Having said that it the dogs gangly bits.
