Stripping Paint with Super Clean
Posted by Goofy62 on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 1:57 PM

I know that there have been individuals on this forum who have questioned the affectiveness of stripping lacquer paint with Super Clean, so I thought that this post might be useful.

This 1965 Plymouth Fury is being stripped of it's multiple coat lacquer paint job for the second time, so you can see that there is no damage to the plastic from prolonged soaking.

Both times, the paint jobs consisted of up to 5 coats of primer, 3 to 4 coats of MCW lacquer color, and another 5 coats of Duplicolor clear lacquer.

After about a 5 day soak in Super Clean you can see how it has begun to dissolve the primer and the paint easily peels off in large sheets.

After peeling off the lacquer layers, the body went back in the pond for about another 1/2 hour to remove the remaining primer.

NO! you will not obtain the same results from one of the cheap knock-offs, (ie. Purple Power or Simple Green)

Get the good stuff, or don't bother!

Thanx, Steve, the results and photos are impressive.  I'm in Australia, and from my looks around, it seems to be a Castrol product.  Is this correct?  Cheers, and thanx.
