Very cool! Please consider doing a complete write up on this project. I've always been intrigued by the idea of stripping and painting our bird.

Will do - it will be a slow process as I can only get a day every other week or so to work on her.  I am hoping to either leave her with the aluminum look or possibly look into getting her "wrapped" instead of painted.

I am going to do this too. 

Crazy I know. 

Ive got a bunch of questions ?

My first hurtle is finding a place to do this.If my airport finds out they will stop me.(they are jerks)   How are you handling this?


Do you think stripper gets into the wing and eats the anticorrosion?

did you reseal your tanks first ? 


I am looking at AllKandy Wet wet , a car painting site , but I can obtain a two part urethane from them (maker autobahn) that is aircraft quality.  I want a metalflake red and black daimond motif, really wet looking.

 there are a million different things you can do , if you do it yourself.

I washed my plane last week and left a puddle full of paint flakes so I decided to start stripping the paint this week.


Not sure if the stripper gets into the anti-corrosion. 


My tanks have bladders.


Not sure what I am going to do - right now I am just getting rid of the flaking paint.
