What is the safest method (not to harm the aluminum) to strip paint from aluminum valve covers?
Regular paint stripper (Zip Strip or similar) will work well.
I remember spilling brake fluid on mine...wrinkled the paint right off!
Lacquer thinner is the go-to paint stripper in my garage.It will cut just about anything.
TIMES 2 o n Lacquer Thinner
plastic media, not glass or sand!
Used regular old paint stripper on mine, and a old tooth brush to get down into the fins and recesses. Had to reapply a couple times to get the remnants out.
