    4200 - getting it off

    whats the best way to get 4200 off the hull? I pulled my pump shoe off, going to install a new one. Now its clean up time, how do you get that crap off? I was going to use the air die grinder with a scotch pad, is that a good way to getting most off or is there another way?

    I wouldn't go grinder crazy on the hull Bro

    I use a flat thin scraper for the heavy stuff, then rub out the rest with acetone or denatured alcohol

    Also you can use a very thin braided wire wheel and be easy if your careful you can get most of like this and then the acetone at the end you will have to razor blade the corners

    are you talking about like a wire wheel? I started using one of those flapper wheels and noticed it was starting to dig into the hull a tad. The scotch bright actually took it off smoothly, took the paint too, but I figured its getting siliconed back up anyways so it wouldn't matter.

    Like WFO said. I use a scraper that has a razor blade on the end of it. If it leaves any, its just a real thin film that you can see through. Then acetone or alcohol removes it.

    I also found that mineral spirits does a good job of cleaning in up, I guess it works the same as acetone.
