I purchased a T-5 transmission that was painted black at one time. The paint is peeling. What is the best way to remove the paint and not damage the aluminum casing?


Thanks

You should be able to use a chemical stripper. I believe most are safe on aluminum. Just don't get it on your hands!

You can buy aircraft paint stripper at an auto paint supply place. I have even seen it in spray cans at Wal-Mart. The stuff works wonderfully for removing paint and wont harm aluminum (planes are made of it).

But be carefull and wear long rubber gloves; it burns your skin badly, and once I got it on my wristwatch and it ate the clear plastic window.
