Be very careful with aircraft stripper. It works, but even doing it outside with good breeze, I inhaled some and burnt my lungs as well as experiencing rapid pulse and tunnel vision… USE A RESPIRATOR!! I’ve recovered for the most part, but don’t take chances — one mistake can end a life or permanently change it… I’ve since wire brushed ’em, used other strippers, sandblasted, and media blasted (walnuts/soda). Now it’s worth my time/money to let somebody else have the risk and hassle. Blast plus powedercoat is around $200 here. Good luck…
