    Paint Removal

    Hi All,

    I'm doing a rebuild and I need to find a place in the Dallas area I can get my bike dipped for paint removal. Any suggestions?

    Your local auto parts store should have some JASCO aircraft stripper.
    Do it yourself and save some $krilla.

    I went to Lowes and bought JASCO Paint and Expoxy remover and man oh man it is nasty ****e but does the job. They only had the aerosol (sp?) and if you get that do NOT let it spray back on you. Even the tiniest bit will burn like all get out.

    The paint just flakes off but it is nasty stuff. Wear long sleaves, gloves, glasses, etc.

    I found some stripper at the hardware store. I got the brush on kind so I could lather it up. After an hour the paint came off with a plastic putty knife pretty easy. On to the primer. Thanks guys.

    You got a stripper to do that for you?! How much did she charge?
