    Whats the best paint stripper?

     



    So I have a set of valve covers, a timing cover, and a oil pan that has paint I want to take off to prep for new paint. In your experience what's the best paint stripper?

    A sand blast cabinet, sorry I couldn resist but your buddies have to have one, I am not a fan of chemical stripping, something that can fit in a blast cabinet generally gets put in. If you cant find one with one send it to the closest powder coater, they can do it for you very inexpensively. Best of luck Matt

    The only stuff I've ever used is called Aircraft Stripper. Nasty stuff and it will boil you skin from the outside - in if you get it on you.
