strip clearcoat question

If You Use Napier 220 Or Another Stripper, Must You Use Water
To Clean Off The Residue?
Is There Any Way To Strip, Or Is There Any Product Out There
That Does Not Require Water To Remove?

I've used both

With either, you could use a plastic putty knife to take off the large residues, and then use paper towels to wipe off the rest. However, with the Napier, it is so easy (and gratifing) to just hose it off. Seeing you are in NY, do you not have access to a hose? I'd use real caution with spraying off the other stuff if it hasn't been wiped down first - the non-Napier BURNS real easy (as in your skin - don't ask me how I know!), and I really wouldn't want it sprayed on to me! I think most people wipe or scrape it off first, then hose off any remaining residue.

I found the Napier worked great on the aluminum, on my Argosy, it didn't work so well on the galvanized steel - I had to use the other for this part.

I used Por stripper, I did not use water to strip with this, I did wipe the area down with a wet cloth to more or less neutralize the remover.
