Were you able to find one? I have to do the interior first, but will be looking this summer for a stripper.

Thanks

It appears that RemovALL is not available in Canada, nor is Citristrip.

There is Greensolv Paint Remover sold at Lee Valley, and I think I will give that a try come this summer.

In passing, I called Barr (the company that makes Citristip), and the engineer I spoke to there said to buy a small quantity of Zylene and test it with a terry cloth to see if it would take the clearcoat off. I plan to start there, although I don't have a lot of confidence that it will do the job...

Thanks

Being military, I come to Petawawa (through Ottawa) from time to time, if it works, let me know. I will stop at Lee Valley and grab some. I'm not at the point of polishing yet (just gutted the interior), so it will be late summer at earliest for me. If your ever in my area, drop me a line.

OK, Lee, I will let you know what happens. I have no plans to polish though, I just want to get rid of the old clear coat.

Last time we were in NB was 2006, but you never know, right...?

I saw "SmartStrip" at HomeDepot in Niagara Falls. The description on the bucket makes it sound similar to removall.

I plan to try this on my trailer this summer, I'll definately post the results.

Apparently, Methylene chloride is THE chemical to avoid in strippers.

Aage - let me know, how it works, and I would rather use something friendly on the gravel/grass

AldeanFan - if that one works, I'm sure I should be able to get it at the Home Depot here, or ordered in

Removal is available from Industrial Plastics and Paints Industrial Plastics & Paints.

Unfortunately the location closest to you is Calgary. Great product.... Maybe they can ship it?
