    Default Paint removal products.

    I have tried a liquid paint removal product, that I am not pleased how it is working. I'm trying to remove lacquer paint. I applied 1 coat, and waited 3 hours, before trying to scrape it off. The paint was tacky and bubbled in places. Even the bubbled areas wouldn't scrape off. I have applied more coats, with the same result. It is still tacky this morning. I thought I would try sanding but as I thought, the 36 grit paper plugged immediately. Any suggestions how I might remedy this situation?

    What did you use? I use the Aircraft paint remover from O'reilly's and it worked pretty good.

    Paint removers are a funny product. I have learned that if you apply them and leave them on for a long period of time the paint can "reharden" and almost return to its former state. I would say apply, wait till it bubbles. maybe 10 minutes and then attempt paint removal. Now lacquer is a whole different beast when compared to today's wimpy paints. Old school lacquer. imron, and amerflint/amerflint 2 paints are harder than uranium. Might do some good to research what painters used to use in the olden days lol.

    Here is a picture of the stripper on the cab top. the picture was taken 15 min. after application. notice no bubbling in paint. so far does not lift paint even where I sanded to bare metal. I had sanded the area with 80 grit prior to application.Name:  DSC_1314.JPG

    what are the chances of that being something besides paint?

    Thanks for the help. I don't know. I assume that this is the original paint. At 1/2 hour I was able to get the paint off around 40% of the treated area. Didn't touch the primer. The paint removed is liquid like. Pushed it with a scraper towards another scraper.

    A little update: it works if I keep applying new product and push the old on untreated areas. But it's not lifting the primer yet.

    You ARE going to find the factory paint much more difficult to remove than other layers of paint.
