should I worry?

Strippers:
Today is in the 80's and sunny. I applied the Aircraft Removal stripper to one side of my baby. I brushed it on rather thick and then waited a good hour before attempting to rub it off by hand with cotton rags and water. Well, it isn't coming off. I'm tempted to fire up the power washer, but have read warnings in the forum to avoid that. My new Makita polisher will show up maybe Thursday in the mail, so my question is: should I worry about leaving the stripper on until Friday? I'm sure the Makita will make short work of getting off the stuff. And it even looks like I should reapply the stripper in spots anyhow. Though couldn't the Makita take off the rest of the clearcoat? thanks

We used Removeall. Brushed it on and left it overnight, next day we used the pressure washer to remove it. It worked great, just be careful around the seams!

It depends on how caustic the stripper is. Leaving it on might end up in pitting. I would recommend lots of water and a nylon brush or rags if it seems too stiff. Get it off to be safe and elbow grease will be the cure.

I used the same stuff and loved it, but I only left it on for about 30 min and it washed right off with the reg. hose and sprayer. Try putting a little more stripper on in a small spot and wait about 15 mins, it should take it all off.
