Default Re: removing paint from aluminum frame

Yesterday, I used Klean Strip "aircraft paint remover" on a bike frame I just got to remove the clearcoat. I did the same on the forks. Sprayed on from a spray can, left on for 30 minutes, used a soft brass wire brush to remove it, washed with dish soap and water, and let it dry. I then used 600 grit, wet and dry paper with WD40 as a lube and worked on the scratches, and then went over it with Neverdull. No "Mothers" yet. It seems to be coming around nicely.
