We began by disassembling the car. Removing all the hardware then doors and lids was necessary in order to strip the paint properly
I don’t like using chemical stripper but when the car is fiberglass liquid stripper is needed so that the glass isn’t damaged by sanding. For the first time we used Captain Lee’s stripper because it’s made for fiberglass and didn’t hurt the glass but did a great job of removing the paint. The problem with Captain Lee’s stripper was that the fumes were VERY strong and we needed supplied air breathing equipment in order to keep from suffering ill effects. Of course skin and eye protection are worn as well.
The entire car is masked so that the stripper is kept under control and only goes where we want.
