Hah!

I knew you would not be able to stand it!

I anticipated your reply.

No need to bring watch, you probably will not even finish second cup of coffee. LoL........ or if the Sicilian influence kicks in, Domani, Domani.............

You better get up early if you want to witness the stripper in action because we will be hosing it down early. ( I hope)

Bon journo!

Smily

What are your opinions on using the aircraft stripper to take paint off the aluminum?
I am considering stripping the grey painted areas at the lower part of the motorhome, instead of repainting.
PeterH replaced a couple of his with new aluminum and it looks great. I could strip, polish some and seal if it will work. There are the compartment doors, and the side lower panels to do.

Remember this is just an "opinion" but, I see no reason why it wouldn't work. It's rather powerful stuff. I think if it were me, I'd do it on a sample section first tho..KWIM?
Be very careful with the stuff as far as eye or skin contact..It's will burn you quickly~ A bucket of clean water handy, just in case~!!
If you can take some before and after pictures..Would be nice to see.
Good luck to both of you~!!
ciao

Not suppose to put Walbernize on cleaned metal, at least not one of them, because it makes the aluminum turn black. There may be a form of Walbernize that can be used, but I have been told only use Carnuba wax on cleaned aluminum by a dealer.

There are several types of Walbernize so check it out first.

Aircraft stripper

We use aircraft stripper when we refinish the metal wings on our gliders. It is surely nasty stuff, but it does the job. You will have to leave it on a variable length of time depending on the temperature. You will also have to go back and retreat some tough spots.

Be prepared for a hell of a mess and wear gloves and eye protection. I wear a pair of gloves made specifically for handling corrosive chemicals. They are a bit clumsy because they are thick, but I'm sure my hands are protected. They have high cuffs, like welding gloves, and that helps a lot.
