Has anybody tried removing 20+ year old dealer applied, sprayed -on undercoat from a Corvette?

I've heard about using "brake fluid" soaking and scrubbing method. And also someone suggested a "Steam Cleaner" or a hot-water pressure washer to do this.

Either way sounds like a P.I.T.A. method! Steam cleaner is probably a little easier. Both are quite messy.

Any other Idea's??
It's sprayed all over the frame and floorpan and all chassis parts and costing me big points in originality type judging (i.e.-NCRS and Bloomington Certification)

Thanks,

Tom, You are right, it is a pain in the tail. I use "brake clean", it takes a lot of cans but used with a scotch brite (red) pad and mineral spirits, it will come off. Also a putty knife comes in handy. I would not use " brake fluid" .................Steve

Eastwood sells a product made specially for removing undercoating; I think it's called Under Gone, or something like that. You might want to give it a try...
