    Paint stripping

    I am thinking of re-painting my bike or just clearcoating it after removing all of the paint that is currently on it for a natural finish. How should i go about stripping the paint from the bike? Any specific products you could reccomend that work better than others? Anyone ever do this before and could offer some hints?

    I did it once, at the auto parts store they carry stuff that you spray on a car to remove paint. It states on it that it is safe for aluminium even. It works well is aobut $5 or so if I remember correctly. Just dont' get it on you're hands it burns

    Or do the wise thing and don't.

    You could also go down to you're local car paint shop, ask them to strip and clear coat..
