If you're repainting the entire body, can't you simply sand the paint/graphics and shoot over it? Why try to remove them?

if easyoff lifts the color you cant paint over it anyway. anything you tried to shoot would lift it.

Paint and body work is all greek to me.
I planned to strip the lettering etc. and send it out for a plain Jane white paint job. I have friend of mine who was/is a 1st class sign painter and just about have him talked out of retirement to do the new graphics, he's 74 now and a dying breed.

If the under lying paint is adhered to the aluminum and isn't flaky, I would scuff it, shoot a coat of sealer and paint the top coat.

If the one shot letter paint is flaking off or is raised, a orbital sander and some 80 grit, followed with steps of grit to 400, should smooth the way to a coat of sealer/paint.

On a job like that and you are going to repaint anyway then a good paint stripper is in order..just make sure it is all neautralized..best is to lay on the stripper and then cover it with those cheapy plastic thro away drop clothes. all the paint should just wash off with soap and water..

just my idea..

Mar hyde makes one. Sem has stripper in its line and I have used Jasco brand as well. main thing is lots of hot water and dawn dish soap and xcrub that puppy real well like you are going to eat off of it to get any residue off before sending it to the painter..You may need to sand it to get an anchor pattern before painting..
