Which way to go ?

After looking at lots of ways to strip the clearcoat off my 1976 31' International I still have questions I need help with. I think I am going to use the Napiere 210 or the 220 product. I contacted the company and was told I would have to get the product from a fellow in Georgia ( I am in Tennessee). I spoke with this fellow and he said I could spray it on with a cheap home sprayer from Home Depot or one of the other stores of this type. He said I would have to take my time and allow the spayer to cool after a few minutes, but it would work. I also read that you should only use a sprayer with metal tips (Titan 440 with a #19 or #21 tip) using the Titan is not an option.I have also read that there was not a problem with putting the stripper on with a brush. The fellow in Georgia told me I would need 5 gallons of the stripper based on the size of the Airstream. My cost through him was going to be about $264.66 plus $20.00 shipping( not sure where this price falls since I don't have any comparison)I am not sure which way to go, but I don't want to start this propect and find out half way through that I have made a Big mistake.

I have heard good things about Napier products. It sounds like you are on the right track. You should also consider how much you will be spending on polish, if you are going that route. It's also quite expensive. If you buy it by the pound you will spend less.
Good luck, Rich

I used plain old Citri Strip from Home Depot. Worked like a big dog and didn't hurt me or the lawn. Splorped it on with a sponge, waited awhile and used an expired frequent flyer membership card to just scrape the clearcoat off -- it came off in long strips.

Used a blue (non scratching) 3m pad for the places that seem to need a little coercion.

My wife and I stripped our Sovereign in about 4 hours.
