    @jimmydean What do I need to strip an aluminum frame to raw? Same with the miscellaneous steel parts?

    This stuff works great and is way safer than other strippers. Brush it on, forget about it for a couple hours then wipe off with a scotch brite pad.

    i've used a variety of products to raw frames, from spray on to brush on...it'll always take longer and use more product than you think and there will.always be nooks that are a PITA. looks dope when done tho.

    :stupid:

    The last few times I've been lazy and gotten the aerosol can. Aircraft works great, but it is nasty stuff.

    the orange juice didn't work well for me. aircraft aerosol was better for me, and available at the bro depot.

    Easy Off oven cleaner usually works too. It's basically sodium hydroxide.

    It will definitely strip paint too. Use it on machines all the time. But I'd prob use the aircraft stripper since that's more geared to aluminum. The easy off could probably damage the aluminum if you left it on too long.

    Other thing to consider is walnut or soda blasting. It's usually pretty cheap, at least around here. You could pay like $50-60 and not have to do a damn thing. Just don't want sand/hard media blast, because it will pit the frame. Soda blast is good.

    Haven't you always wondered how cool it would be to heat your bike up with a torch until it glowed? I have.

    This is what happened to MikeD's 5-stop @Westy had mentioned a while back of my epic failure. My buddy had a friend strip it at his shop. They remove the paint from rail cars before repainting. They use beach sand, but it is high pressure and out of a damn near fire hose. First and last time his services were deployed. I wanted to do it by hand and Rob had it done while I was at work. It didn't remove any metal, but it left a pretty rough surface. Then the powder used was a special order of a whole other epic fail. :rofl:

    If the frame is aluminum, it won't glow. The base metal will just turn liquid at about 1200*. The aluminum oxide skin will semi keep it together until the whole thing fails.

    Remember to spray down your raw frame with Silicone before painting, prevents oxidation from starting and ruining your paint job..



    Or not.

    Paint will not even think about sticking to a surface with silicone on it.
