Hey Everyone;

I have an old aluminum gas tank with thick paint (30 yrs old, not
original) that I would like to strip. It is too thin to blast, so I
thought I should have it dipped. Anyone know of any local (Milwaukee
area) strippers (paint strippers) that you could recommend? Any other suggestions?


Thanks!
Dave

don't dip. use any old paint stripper like "5f5" or "strip-ez". you'll have to do it a couple/few times. wire brush, and gloves. a torch at the end w/ a pick to clean the welds. simple green 2/3 times when your done will get it ready to prime.

Honestly, a few coats of spray of aircraft paint stripper work just fine in most cases, unless it's powdercoat.
