Stripping paint for days.
#1
Was in the process of stripping the paint and sanding it down when I decided to clean the garage. Pulled her into the sun for a bit and let it run. Figured I’d grab a picture for everyone.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!  I agree they look very cool in yellow.   thumb

Are you using a chemical stripper?

I used some aircraft paint stripper from O'Reilly Auto Parts and was pretty much done in an afternoon (minus the doors, that is).  Brushed it on, the paint puckered up like in the 2nd picture, then I scraped it off into a garbage bag.  I wore safety glasses, a respirator, nitrile gloves under giant rubber cleaning gloves, was careful to not sling anything around, and still wound up with a couple of itchy red areas on my forearms and a couple of new holes in my clothes.   

   

   

   

I also had the hood soda blasted, but it wasn't as effective as I was hoping for, so I spent a weekend wearing out/changing out sanding discs, and boy did that suck.

That's a lot of work!
Glad for you there is no surprises bellow the paint! Don't think I'll be that lucky..

I can't sand anything at my place or this means live in dust land forever. Instead I use like Mr4x4 chemical strippers... only the "good" ones, like aircraft are forbidden in Europe as they are highly toxic, so we have to deal with "environment friendly" alternatives. And when you find one that actually works (after trying a few doing absolutely nothing.. ), the next prob is that they need the weather to be nice and warm. At least 15c/50F. Bellow 10c/32F, applying just soften the paint, not the pain, learned that the hard way with my hood last november... nice weather for one side and temp dropped and getting it totally bare was really no fun.
But I must say that when it works, it saves really a lot of work and mess is minimal.

73 modified Grandé 351C. Almost done. 
71 429CJ. In progress

I feel that! I used the aircraft stripper as well, stuff really works! It took 2 gallons to get down to metal/primer. The car was repainted before so I had several layers to go through. Now that I got 95% of it off I’m using a 80 grit sander to remove the last little bits.
