Stripping paint
Posted by dueseylvr on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 2:54 PM

Over the past 10 monthes or so I have been scratch building a 1965 short wheelbase Ford F100 pickup based on a 1:1 owned by a friend of mine. Until I painted the chassis everything was going fine. I rushed the paint job on the chassis and now I need to strip it. My question is: can I strip the paint without undoing numerous glue joints? The frame rails are solid strips, but each of the crossmembers is comprised of several pieces glued together with superglue. It would really ruin my day if things started to come apart, then I would become unglued!

You can. I use Easy-Off heavy duty oven cleaner, but others use purple power or DOT3 brake fluid. soak it overnight in the stuff and brush it off with water and a disposable brush
