Big Blue is going away
the blue stripe and trim which the previous owner painted is going, but slowly.
I bought a sand blaster gun, and 25 lbs of chopped walnut shells to strip it, but it did not yield.
The gun would clog after an inch of stripping. Very frustrating.
So back to the Kleen Strip which after aircraft stripping spray, and Removall, is the only chemical that actually loosened the thick blue and underlayer green paint.
I then pressure washed the area and this got most of the remainder off the trim. The large center area will be covered with new striping. The trim will be polished and the insert trim added.
I have started the trim insert as shown in the photos. Hard work as the trim fits very snugly due to some left over paint in the rails.
