Paint removal (spray and gloss)

Postby john007 » Fri Feb 08, 2008 5:54 pm

Ok, so not too sure where this should go but hey.

I need to remove alot of paint from a car to bring it back to the bare metal, it's be sprayed several times and it's also be painted in regular black gloss (dont ask)

is there a way of removing all this paint which doesnt involve using an angle grinder.

just looking for a fluid or something.

PS it's not possible to sand blast as it's inside a building.

Whilst liquid paint stripper is recommended, I have always found it difficult to get all traces of the paint stripper removed. Have a look at a book on old car restoration.
