    aluminum moldings

     



    Hi, we are restoring a 65 ply. The side moldings have clear coat I believe it to be that. Anyway does anyone know of a way to get this off so we can get to the aluminum under it? We have tried steelwool, extra find sandpaper. We have removed some it, but that to much work and time.The aluminum where we have got this stuff off looks new. Want to do all the trim moldings Anyone have any ideas????

    Your moldings are anodized which is a form of plating. It is NOT paint. Here's a link to a site that sells a reanodizing kit, and has instructions for chemical stripping. www.caswellplating.com

    Also, you can check with plating outfits in your area to see if they do, or know of someone who does, anodizing.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.
