Can the aluminum skin on a 64 Compact be blasted with something to remove about 3 layers of paint? I have been using paint stripper but taking too long & making me sick even with a mask. Thanks in advance!
This is interesting info to me, also. I'm trying to decide what to do to my 61 compact. I have an offer for someone to do a nice auto-type painting IF I can get the mess off of it. It appears to have multiple layers of paint on it now, including your basic white house paint...
House paint is the hardest to get off. You may as well forget about chemicals and go for sanding. It's gonna be a job for sure. My painter charges me $500 for the stripping and I gladly pay it to him. I think he's cheap actually.
God grant me the strength to restore the trailers I can,
The courage to strip the parts from the trailers I can't,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I have a 1963 shasta that original was shiny silver.It has a thin coat of paint, but the shiny aluminum is showing thru in alot of spots. How can I strip the paint without damaging the shiny under surface. Is there a product that works best for a gal doing it by herself by hand? Thanks in advance

I used the orange citri strip on mine and it wasn't too bad, leaves things under fairly shiny, but if you are looking for really shiny you'll have to do some more work afterwards. I think there are some threads on that.
