What can i use to strip paint from aluminum panels???

Post  jbozzelle on September 5th 2017, 4:31 pm

Need some idea son some good paint stripper that'll strip paint from aluminum body panels and not affect the aluminum, etc... Looking to strip some paint from the aluminum interior panels I made for my Mustang before I paint them...

Don't want to sand with a DA for fear of putting too much heat into the panel and warping.

The stuff I used at Gulfstream I believe was Kleen Strip, the paint shop would give to me in an unmarked container. It sometimes required multiple applications, but that was because of the paint that was used and the thickness and had no affect on the aluminum. Even the alodine coating remained intact.

Thanks guys. I'll pick up a few cans. Interesting that it left the alodine intact as well.

Surprised me too, but as a precaution I always re-alodined and do a ph test before the paint shop would do their touch up.
