I would like to respray my 93 trek 1420. It is a bonded aluminum frame with about 1500 miles on it. From what I understand, sandblasting AL will compromise the structural integrity of the frame. And solvents are the safest way to strip paint. I dont have access to a sandblaster anyways nor do I think I could find one large enough. Im afraid to go the solvent route because of the bonding process. There is little documentation I can find on bonded aluminum but I believe the tubes are glued/bonded together with certain chemicals. I was told that it bonds at a molecular level but I am still skeptical to pour paint stripper on this frame. Anyone with experience. Thanks.
