Lightbulb Looks good but...

I'm pretty sure that stuff will etch (melt?) the plastic lenses of your marker lights. I know the Aircraft Stripper we used does. It's a good idea to remove the light lenses and any other plastic parts before stripping...lest you'll have more replacement parts to buy.

I agree 100%. Why I still see people posting threads about how sticky the clearcoat is, etc...I'll never know. This stuff REALLY works and it was so easy, my dogs blushed.

Ange 73,
We just bought a 1979 25 Tradewinds International. The clearcoat is shot. Where did you find the Removall 228? I take it after you strip off/hose off the clearcoat, you then need to reseal all the seams? With Vulcan or Sika-flex?

Okay, whatever...I just thought some stripper may get on the lenses when you hose it off too. I just thought I'd warn you before it was too late. Sounds like you are happy with your technique and results...

P.S. I think I've seen it at Home Depot Jim...

For the europeans out there...

Hi all,

thanks for guiding us to RemovAll, it sounds like the way to go... RemovAll is not available in all European Countries, but I found a source in the UK, that will ship to mainland europe.
The Homepage is called www.paint-stripper.co.uk and it is from bcaviations. There is a source for the Por stripper also, but RemovAll sounds way easier to use. I used Por Stripper on our compartment doors and it worked good, but RemovAll is our way to go for the rest of the Trailer.

Love these forums...

Bjoern

Well i got it from http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/ $49.95 a gal.And it may take a little longer then 10 min to set.We didnt have much (clear coat)left is why i think it didnt take us to long .And i also got the vulkum from them but its now called trempro and it is messy also. You may also think about getting the pur bond for the smaller areas.
Hope this helps...

Didnt mean anything by it.But its ok if it would of hurt the lights. Cause there old and in great need of replacing anyway...We took the A/S out of this years camping trips just so we could competely redo her inside and out.
