I am reading on the back of my can of stripper that you can clean it off with a solvent.
What type of solvent are we talking here?
Do I just wet a rag with solvent and wipe off?
I have been using the hose to spray it off with water for small pieces I can get into my back yard but I dont have an easy way to get the cab in a good place to rinse it.

Any ideas? Fire away!

I've been thinkin' about freaking out. If I could just find the time.

The best, easiest and quickest way is to just give her a dollar and she will move on.....

Damnit!
I bought the "stripper" today on lunch. I took the can into my office because I did not want the heat to blow it up or anything weird.

Every person that came in my office made some comment about me having strippers in my office.

Enough!

Then my wife saw the can and said she would not allow stripper sin the house.

Enough!
:rolleyes:

I2D: Buddy just tell your wife its cheaper than a lap dance grin .

Lay plastic around cab and start scraping or use an old blanket wash truck lightly. I use a product called Will Bond, (most paint stores) and wipe. Going thru the same thing right at the moment just taking a small area at a time. Using scraper and Orbital sander working pretty good so far.

I used safety razor blade for stripping the large areas, and a wire brush on the grinder for the harder areas to reach.. just make sure you are well covered up using a wire brush he paint stripper really stings....
