Whenever you strip paint off something, 90% just falls right off, 5% comes off with some elbow grease, and 5% requires a nuclear blast type effort.

If only all your paint jobs could come out like that last 5%

The plastic trim that surrounds the sport lamps on my Mach. I'm proud to say I'm at about the 98% mark, but that last 2% is a bitch!

If it won't come off now, what are the chances it will come when you are finished repainting everything?

Probably 100%

If you want a nice finish, it's important for the substrate to be uniform.

Couldn't take seeing the Craftsman light bulb post sitting at the top of the list any longer.
