seeing as it is in this vein i ask here rather than start a new thread - what is the concensus on stripping paint? i have heard many say that media blasting is best, provided its done correctly and others say you can acid strip panels, hoods, trunk lids, doors etc - but then i have heard issues with acid stripping re removing some silicon?
i have been interested in acid stripping my doors only as there seems to be so much built up crud once you remove the inner panels and body mouldings...

appreciate any tips guys ,

cheers James

Wow, what a woman!  Does she have a sister who's single?

That's the thought that came to my mind as well... ;)
