    See if there's a blasting shop locally that would mind slipping your parts in with a larger job - I got all the parts for my old 292 done for the big cost of $10, and a six pack of Rolling Rock.

    I look at it like any household chore. Pay a local kid/younger cousin to do it. Supervision is mandatory/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif.

    Tal-Strip. You can get it in an aerosol can at Auto Zone.

    I stripped my whole /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif with the brush on type. Make sure you wear oven cleaning gloves, mask, and safety glasses! And if spraying it on, stay up wind!

    Brush/ spray it on, wait a few, the paint will bubble right off! I used a scotch brite pad to wipe it off.

    Rinse with water, dry, sand lightly, primer, and paint.

    Beats a DA for tough layers of paint any day IMHO.

    I use Bix Stripper from K-Smart! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif It does a good job and isn't as potent as the Kleen-Strip I used to use.

    sandblaster is the easiest, quickest, and cleanest way to do it.
