    Paint strippers

    What paint strippers do people recommend? I am thinking of stripping all the old paint of my car before paint and want a decent chemical to help remove to old paint.

    Small areas rattle can paint strippers or aircraft remover work well. I used a DA and some 80 grit paper on the cressida

    3M spray on stuff works well (i think spray on strippers work better full stop)

    If you coat a panel, lay shrink wrap over the stripper on the panel while it works. It 'sweats', so making it somewhat air-tight helps.

    Just be careful if you use the sprays. I tried it once a long time ago and I thought I was absolutely safe and upwind of the overspray but as I was spraying, I noticed a tingling feeling on my arms and face. I guess I forgot about possible eddy currents bringing some of the overspray back...

    Anyway, I worked great at stripping paint but I don't think I will be using the spray stuff for quite a while yet...

    PPE should go without saying. some of that shit seriously burns. always cover up when using it, gloves and goggles/glasses at a minimum!

    Re: Paint strippers

    Sorry to thread-jack, but I'm looking for a paintstripper aswell to get the paint off my chrome bumpers. I need something that won't damage the chrome. My buddy told me the Toyota chrome is pretty tough and that I don't have to be too worried about using paint stripper, so I want something thats a bit stronger than the thinner someone suggested.

    I say Jasco. You can buy the stuff at any parts store or home improvement store. I use it for auto paint, rims, cabinets... you name the paint and it will take it off.
