:w Bill Welcome to the Corvette Action Center Community ;)

If you get a chance please take a few minutes and visit ourNew Members Introduction Forum and say :w to everyone ;)

I did a search using "Stripper" as the seach word and here are a couple threads that might interest you ;)

Media Blast verses Chemical Strip

and

Best Paint Removal Process

Both of these discuss Paint Removal with recommendations/suggestions of which Chemical they used. Very knowlegable folks weighed in with their opinions too ;)

Good Luck with your upcoming project ;)

I have always used Zip Strip from the local hardware store. It's water soluable so you can hose it off and nutralize it with water.

Cap'n Lee's fiberglass stripper. 2 gallons to strip at least 4 coats of color and two coats of clear. Worked perfectly. Spray it on and the paint curls up and falls off. Neutralized with water and will not harm the fiberglass.
