Gum removal Spitfire 1500

Recommended Posts

I have just had a go at the mixture of paint and seam sealer on mine. First, flashed over with a paint stripping disc on an angle grinder, then treated with paint stripper deep into the seam. Remove what you can with a stripping knife. Repeat with more paint stripper. Wash off any remaining stripper with lots of soap & water using a wire brush or wire wool in the seam. Finish off with course wet & dry worked well into the seam on a flat blade (wallpaper stripper worked well) then wash again and dry off. I then brushed biltgamber hydrate 80 into the seam to kill any rust before priming.
