I had to strip the paint on this dash , my question is this clean enough , I used drano and soft scrub and then washed it with dawn , or will the remaining paint be an issue ?
Paint stripping clean question

That's good for re-painting. Just be sure to prime it thoroughly.

Anne, I seriously doubt it . Shoot , I generally use the least expensive Brake fluid I can buy . For me , it works as good as any of the cleaners and when you have embedded paint in a finly grained area like I saw , just do as Charlie said to do, PRIME IT THOUROUGHLY !

Brake fluid to strip enamel paint?
Yeah...some of us old guys remember spilling a little brake fluid on the fender of Dad's car, while 'helping' and then watching in horror as the paint blistered off. It works.

I use to use brake fluid. Til it started going Over $1.50++ a bottle!!
I have Two Models that it did Not work on,
(And they are STILL out there in it 20+ years later!!!)
an Original AMT Keaton Batmobile primed with flat black,
and a Monogram re-issued 1/32 scale Aurora 65 GTO painted good OLD Testor's #03 red!!
The Red Fish-eyed. It should have still been fairly soft when I dropped it in the Brake fluid, But....................
I have been using Wesley's (Now BLACK MAGIC) Bleche White.
Works good, Though it too has colors/paints it does not like to strip
Brown Mostly so far!!

Anne it's not too bad, could possibly be a little cleaner. I use a medium, or stiff bristled toothbrush, and warm water. If it does'nt come off with that, it probably wont be coming off at all.
