The Ultimate Paint Stripping Thread
Posted 08 May 2012 - 03:14 PM
Here is a pic of a body that was painted with Testors black metalflake, after two days in the LAs Totally Awesome and some gentle brushing it came completely clean. I have never got such a complete stripping from oven cleaner and the plastic is always damaged and stained.

Did you not see the two photos of the chrome wheel I posted? That's clear proof that it does in fact remove the clear coat under the chrome.
I had some new AMT semi wheels in it for three days and it didn't make a dent in the under coat for me. The plating was gone in a few hours but after three days the undercoat was still there so I rinsed them off and tossed them in some brake fluid. I did see what you had posted and was hoping for the same results since my wheels had runs in the clear under the chrome but that wasn't my experience. How old was the wheel you tested, maybe they changed the undercoat formula.

My Haz-Mat training tells me the extra health risk just wouldn't be worth it.
Stick with the safer stuff, it's hot enough.
Besides, what are you going to save? Ten or fifteen minutes?

Welfare (no-name brand) Oven Cleaner works the fastest for me, minutes if not seconds for clean parts....
