OK, this stuff is nothing new. It has been around for a good long time, and I use the shit out of it. Most of you have probably been exposed to this wonderfully formulated mess of paint-eating PFM, but I thought I'd take a few minutes to share a few pointers that I've learned. If you've ever needed to remove the finish from an old set of wheels, a set of valve covers, etc., you probably have considered every option from sand-blasting to chemical stripping already. I choose to chemical strip whenever I can, and this is the best stuff I've found. Too good, really... So here's what I do... and why. I buy the big jug of Tal-Strip, which comes only about 2/3 full and costs around $45 at the Auto parts "burger joints". This stuff really is overkill when it comes to removing paint from metal parts, and it ain't cheap. SO, I've found that you can mix lacquer thinner into the Tal-Strip without really affecting its ability to eat the paint off of anything it touches. Add about a quart of lacquer thinner to a new jug, replace the cap, and shake the shit out of it. Why..? Tal-Strip straight out of the jug is almost a gell, and is intended to be brushed on. I've found there to be a lot of waste using the brush-on method, as it seems to blob up and run off of the part. Brushing it on is quite messy, and I've never liked it much. It also seems to dry rather quickly, leaving you to scrape any still solid paint, or recoat. The new "mixture" is much thinner and can be poured into a spay bottle for application. The lacquer thinner keeps it from drying out so quickly since it has a low evap rate, allowing the stripper counterpart of the mix to eat all the way through the paint. The spay bottle applies enough stripper to the surface to eat through the coating, and without the waste of gell blobs rolling off the part. You only really need a thin coat. And, as an added bonus, you end up with an extra quart of stripper. Once you see all the paint has rippled up, just hose it off and dry. I rarely ever have to scrape of recoat anything. And that, my friends, is my tip of the day.
