I use Easy Off oven cleaner for stripping parts. For the hole in the roof, patch it with some sheet styrene, then fill the rest of the hole with putty.

Mate I don't want to sound mean or rude but first thing's first.... If you want people to understand & then help you, you should brush up on your spelling, or at least use the spell checker. It really doesn't take much effort, yeh? That being said, Easy-off Oven Cleaner should do the job. Be very careful with this stuff, it's extremely bad to inhale, especially indoors. Do it outside, where possible & wear a mask. Let it sit over-night. Wash it down the next day with warm soapy water. If there are area's where paint/glue is still present then re-spray the oven-cleaner & repeat the process. Styrene should be able to fix that hole, as stated above. Most important, when you start over, re-painting etc.... Be patient! Let the paint gas-out for a day or 2 ;-) & use the glue sparingly ( little amount's at a time). Another solution to the hole in the roof would be to make a sunroof? Turn a negative into a positive ;-)

Cheers, Cliffo.

You can spray esy-off in the house but just use a Tupperware container so you can seal it tight and you can leave it for acouple days then pull it out and scrub it with a tooth brush.. :unsure: .OOOOh and don't use hers they get real upset about things like that, and use ruber gloves .

Oh man! That stinks! (literally)

Don't worry about the body for the moment and get that mess cleaned up! That is some NASTY stuff. Hope you were doing it outside...

If you got any on you, clean up right away!!

DOT 3 Brake fluid works good in all temps. The thickness of he paint determines how long it takes to strip.

Too much glue....too much paint......too much easy off........too much sugar......too much Bourbon......not enough Bourbon? Sorry, I am a bit confused by all of this.
