paint stripper suggestions

I have a "new to me" tub for my Sankey with 20 coats of British army camo paint. Need/want to strip as much as possible chemically before pulling out the sand blaster. Plan is to galvanize the whole tub.

Is it CARC paint (very matte, rough to the touch)? I think it stands for Chemical Agent Resistive Coating.... or is it regular auto paint?

I think pee works well. Drink a lot of coke first.

Good point on the CARC... but I bet it will work.

I have been using the aircraft stripper and it works great. I can get the brand if you like but it is the one thar Kragen and Ace carry.

I also tried citri strip as it is "safer" but it does not work well and you end up doing it twice or 3 times so your exposure is probably greater. Dont bother

Get some good chem resistant gloves and wear a respirator, it is nasty stuff and burns like hell.
Seriously, use glasses if you are using a brush, I flicked some next to my eye and realized how much it could have sucked.

I mention CARC as that paint is supposedly toxic as hell. Us front line grunts in the military can't even work with it anymore, it has to go up to depot level where they have to wear fresh air ventilators and tyvek suits inside a special paint booth... plus until very recently they used a lead-based primer for it. Nasty, nasty stuff all around.

For the series trucks, pretty much everyone says Kleen Strip aircraft paint stripper is the poop. I would imagine a Sankey trailer would be no different... it just makes the paint turn into a jelly-like substance that can be scraped away.

apply the stripper and enclose the whole thing in a huge plastic bag and leave it overnight, it will give you much better results and you'll save a lot of time.
