What's the best thing to strip the paint off my rocker cover?
I have started sanding by hand.
Stripping rocker cover 20150609_220754_zpsuzc5s3nk
Thats taken me an hour.
I have taken the black off. White off and a grey primer. Theres an ivory colour still to go.
But as you see im only 1/3 through the first 3 coats.
Would nitromorse (sp) be okay to use?
Thanks in advance.

i nitro morsed my whole mini! it was painted with 5 different coats at the time, just make sure you wash it afterwards to get all residual stripper off or it'll fuck your paint up.

I used nitromors. It took 4 applications and still left some parts untouched.
Thats better than having to sand it all off by hand tho Smile

Get a load of old battery acid and lay cover in a tray overnight then thoroughly wash it off the next day.

Or as Tom suggested acetone is a good remover of paint or anything else come to that
