I can't believe you are using the stripper with those nice wheels and tires on the car.  I would put her on jacks or cheap old wheels and tires.

Back when I was younger and a little crazy me and a friend took his VW beetle to local $.25 car wash brushed the stripper on and blew the paint off and left the car wash in a mess, lol. No video back then.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

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.


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.

Ah - multiple coats of paint. Gotcha. Mine was just the original paint, albeit very sunburned (believe it or not, the paint on mine was Light Pewter Metallic after 40+ years).

Be careful with the lead seams on the A-pillars and where the upper quarters meet the roof.

Carry on, Brutha! She's comin' along nicely! thumb

Did you strip down to bare metal? My primer is staying stuck in most places, I was going to just sand down smooth. What was your technique?
