    Well your issue had me curious and Ive read a few articles that state you may find yourself using different methods as well as using different brands of chemical strippers to find the one that works best for your application. The cars I have had stripped or stripped myself I've sanded or had sanded. Smaller projects I have used aircraft stripper and in my experience no 2 strippers worked the same for every project. I would think that the stuff you got from Eastwood would have been among the best but thanks to the environmental nutcases out there, nothing chemically works as it once used to.

    I have talked to a shop owner who informed me that he had tried 3 different brands in his shop and they didn't do the job for him. This doesn't mean they don't work, I am stating someone else has had the same problem. I plan to Sand to bare metal and this person will help me paint.

    When using paint stripper it is imortannt to be at around 70 degrees ..Apply 2 or 3 coats .. within 10 min it should be melting the lacquer . Move the melted mess to an area that hasent had any with a plastic putty ..No it wont move Epoxy prime lol . I use to strip a complete car in 7 hrs . Wash with lacquer thinners and wait till next day to sand

    Paint strippers will work fine but really messy. Another method to remove paint is media/soda blasting.

    No, I didn't. I was trying to do the job myself. I wanted to get the experience doing most of the work myself.
