I have looked around for it on this forum, but I think overlooked it. I see a lot of restoration projects but none really get into the details of getting rid of the layer of paint that covers the original paint. Could you help me with a link if you know any?
Easier to spray on new OD paint over the old.
If you must strip off the outer layer to get to what is underneath,
use Acetone. But, it is A LOT of work - and in doing this, you
might also remove the original layers.........
I have in the past used a low pressure modellers sand blast airbrush to expose original paint on all manner of things from military vehicles through to aircraft. I managed to reveal an original 7th Gurkha Rifles emblem on my Land Rover from underneath 3 layers of more modern paint so anything's possible. It's a whole heap of work and very messy but oh so satisfying!
