clear coat.... Take me to your leader

Well I'm into day three stripping the clear coat from my Airstream....a total of 10 hours. Seeing a lot of blotches, discoloration, and different metal tones (color). Can't figure it out yet. I discovered I can apply the stripper with a long handled roller so I don't have to get up on the ladder. I can even reach the end caps. Stay tuned for day 4.

What stripper are you using?

I don't envy that job for sure, I just took the clearcoat off a brand new refrigerator vent cover (way smaller than an Airstream )
And that clearcoat is tough! I had to resort to sanding off some spots before I polished it!
