definitely sandblasting

Re: What is the best way to get paint off Metal

Scrape it off with a fresh razor blade.

Re: What is the best way to get paint off Metal

Sandblasting is messy but probably easiest. Last time I stripped paint, I used chemical stripper like Dill said... Also messy but works great. And PLEASE if you use it, don't get it on your skin. It burns like fuck. Otherwise, if you got the time, razor blade. So what everyone has said is a viable option. If you have access to a sandblaster, use it.

imo if your planning on stripping down your ltd please dont as it took 30 to get that natural patina and once you repaint it army green then its just a mkII

actually soda blasting is the best as it wont pit the metal and you wont get silicosis

Angle grinder with wire wheel works fucking wonders !

Re: What is the best way to get paint off Metal

Depends on the paint... sandblast, thinner/stripper, sanding... nothing's real easy, but all do the job.

Works pretty well on rattle canned stuff, powder coated stuff takes forever to come off with a wire wheel! But, it does work pretty well/easily.

I don't know how original mopeds were painted but it rips that shit off easy! Only things, wear long sleeve, gloves pants safety glasses, and make sure that if you're trying to plug your ears from the noise, use ear plugs with out a cord or if using ear phones, put them unde your shirt, last night that shit grabbed my ear phone cord an whiped it so hard I have like 100 slits in my stomach. I look like Jesus when he got whiped in that one movie about Jesus.

Aircraft remover

Re: What is the best way to get paint off Metal

^ agreed aircraft stripper. the stuff is toxic do it out side. i would rather pay someone to soda blast my stuff.

Re: What is the best way to get paint off Metal

x3 aircraft- strongest stripper

soak it, put plastic bag over, and in sun for 25 min

u might re-wet it once again. neutralize it if possible

or build sodablaster like on aircooled.net
