I come to foo for this. Paint removal question.

Jasco paint remover.

Bike frame.

I can't figure out why it won't evenly take off the paint?

On the bottle it says to brush in one direction, once, not back and forth. I notice in some spots the paint just blisters off, in others(seem to be the thicker areas I didn't follow directions on) it just does nothing.

What am I doing wrong? It melts off decals and some paint... But not enough.

got nothing but a guess.

Can you use some steel wool (gently of course) on the trickier sections? Or some short of stiff brush that won't scratch it?

Never heard of said Jasco paint remover. Big fan of aircraft remover,
that will melt any paint of of any surface. Wear gloves, goggles, a face mask,
a lead appron like for xrays...also have a bucket of water very handy.

Also,follow the directions, sometimes some paint adheres to metal better in
one area than another. So a second or third applications may be necessary.

aircraft stripper like above or ace hardware brand gel brush on remover works great and it's cheap. follow precautions above. it's like napalm when it gets on ya. don't bother with the aerosol crap either.

for the ace stuff... brush on liberally, wait a few minutes brush it around again then use a small wire brush, preferably brass, and it should take everything right off.

OH, and I don't have steel wool. I do have one of those grill brushes, an old one I can use for scraping. I'll try that, or I'll have to get some of the aircraft stuff.

Orange and pink are my two favorite colors.

Blue comes in second.

Want my "stable" built up so I have my

good mtb - used for hard usage offroad - with the better parts of course

commuter (where the blue bike would fall) - with good parts and solid and able to be taken off road no prblem.

cheapo winter bomber (will buy this or next weekend and put other and better gears on it) so as to not rustify my other bikes and kill the brakes, hubs, etc as I have in the past. Need this bike as I commute in slushy yuck that kills a bike.


Had the start to what I intended - but was taken down with the one bike stolen.

Have it acid dipped.

For 20 bucks or so, it's not bad. Anything but healthy unrusted metal will be dissolved. With no work on your part.

Orange frame, either of the two posted above. PINKY as the frame brand, with a small white border around the pink.
