    Removing paint from GPR cylinders?!

    I have two cylinders that are bare and the other is painted black. I want to remove the black paint on the one so all three look the same.

    Is there anything I can use to do this without damaging the cylinder?

    Any help would be great!

    -Jon

    It would be easier to paint the 2 bare ones black to match the other black one.

    Might try an automotive paint supply and see what they recommend for paint stripper for those cylinders.

    felpro makes an aerosol gasket remover that kicks ass! just wipe some grease on the cylinder walls to protect them
