stripping paint

5 posts in this topic

hey all,

Ive been working on a 64 fairlane kit. I made a big boo boo on the initial paint job and need to strip the paint. Ive been soaking it in brake fluid for well over a month and results have been unacceptable. any ideas to strip it sooner than soaking it in brake fluid?

Depending on what type of paint you used, there's several answers. Superclean, Purple Power, and Dawn Power Dissolver will take off enamels. Use 91% alcohol for laquers.

I havent tried any of the tips yet. how ever i was looking over the super clean bottle and it seems rather abrasive. do i need to act fast to prevent any deformation of the plastic?

No. The Superclean will not harm the plastic at all. You will want to consider wearing latex or rubber gloves when working with it, as it will cause chemical burns on your skin if you're not carefull.

Something you will want to avoid is putting anything that's diecast in it, as it will dissolve the aluminum in the allow. Some resins can be harmed by it, too.
