Home Depot should have some that are resistant to chemicals.

My Cruisemaster had not less than SIX coats of paint
Started off with Zipstrip which I had always used before. Then switched to Clean strip which was cheaper and worked approx. four times as good.

Ditto on the gloves long pants & sleeves.

I love it when people ask what color I'm gonna paint it :lol: :lol: :lol:

Was wondering about chemical resistant gloves. Where do you get 'em? Also was thinking lacquer thinner and scotch brite pad on primer?

Yes. As good or better. Don't use it in the wind. Wear pants and a long sleeve shirt and goggles and chemical gloves. It is some nasty sh t. Let it sit for 5 to 10 then pressure wash off. It sprays on as a liquid then gels up. For really stubborn spots spray it on and use a scotch bite pad (with gloves)

Works better than Aircraft Paint Remover?

Don't forget to use Dad'sstripper available from ace hardware. It sprays on and is much easier to apply.

3100 psi. The paint was all chalky from 60 years of Texas sun.

What PSI is your pressure washer? I can't say my 3100 went through the paint like butter.

Mine had more paint on it than yours. The paint on the top decks is pretty much burnt off so there isn't much work to do up there. Most of the original white paint washed off with the pressure washer. It was the primer that needed to be scraped off.

BEAUTY. How much paint do you think was left on yours compared to mine? Have a gallon of stripper. Now you've shared me into using it. :-) :-)
