    it's a bitch. last time i was stripping it off an aluminum part, i used a ton of chemical stripper, followed by a wire brush and then a sandblaster.

    I searched the forum awhile back looking for something to strip my Riva grate & found someone recommended this stuff but haven't tried it yet.

    I read some other forums and saw the aircraft cleaner but it isn't sold everywhere. Used the Klean-Strip Premium Stripper. This stuff doesn't play. If you use it be sure to use the appropriate safety gear. Do not use latex gloves as it eats through them in about 30 seconds. Found out the hard way. The biggest problem I had was that the powder coat gets into some tight places on complex parts that are almost impossible to remove the coating. I had already did the tank before I took pictures. The fender took about 10 minutes.

    wow that worked pretty well!!!
    i stripped my supercharger last spring, it was a total byotch to get that powdercoat off!!!! several applications of stripper, and wire brush and sandblaster to finish it off.
    all teh nooks and crannies on the SC were nearly impossible to scrape out.
    looks like your parts came clean real easy, kinda peeled/fell off, how nice!!!!

    I used this stuff and worked great!!!!! I would spray it on wait per instructions then wash it off with a pressure washer. NOTE: do not do it on the driveway, it will stain the concrete. Do it in the street.

    Crystal draino and warm water in a bucket removes powder coating and anodizing like it was made to do so. Just dont leave it in too long..

    we use a two part chemical know as FO-606 but it has to be maintained at 180 degrees or it will go bad....but no scrubbing with that stuff... be careful when you mechanically remove powder coat on aluminum parts...even shooting plastic media it will leave tiny divots on the surface of the metal...blasting of aluminum in the aircraft industry is a no no...shouldn't hurt a ski though...if you can't get it stripped send it to me. i'll get it off within a few hours and send it back...no charge
