best way to strip a bike?
I saw the post about powder coat and getting them sand blasted .. but can you use chemical stripers if so what works best?
Chemical strippers in my opinion are a pain to work with(messy and smell really bad).Plus they dont work well in the tight areas(my experience).You must neutralize the part before painting . (running water over a part that is stripped never made much sense to me)With sandblasting, you just need to remove decals, (imo. and exp.) degrease the part and then go easy with the sandblaster. When you are done it is ready for powdercoat or epoxy prime/paint. Hope this helps.
Kleen-strip's "Aircraft remover". i've used gallons of it .great stuff.
