taking PC off yourself

So im going to get my frame/parts recoated, and instead of paying to have the coat blasted off im probably going to try and get most of it off myself. I know some of the cracks/crevices and hard to get to parts are going to need blasted but what should i use to take most of the PC off??? Im thinking angle grinder with grinding wheel, will this work???? I know the PC is a prettty thick coating and quite durable, just wondering if any pros out there have done this and can give me advice/tips to help save me a buck..... i am going to use the money i save probably for a custom embroided seat...... Any help would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks guys

I wouldn't use a grinding wheel, if I were going to do it by hand it would use a wire brush. Just make sure it's rated for the speed of your grinder

Aircraft Remover (Rustoleum)...Spay it on ...wait and hour...scrape it off...NO GRINDER unless you want a really fucked up frame.

+1 .........you'll have big and very noticeable flat spots if you use a grinder.On a serious note-blasting is "the shit"..how much to have the frame blasted (?),by the people doing the PC ?

It's going to be "jelly like" once the remover works on it. Just scrape it off with a putty knife or similar. If you use a wire wheel it's going to sling that shit on to you and then it's going to turn your skin jelly like LOL...seriously, you dont want to get that stuff on your skin or in your eyes. Work carefully with it and be patient. You might have to re-apply it a time or two before you get the bulk of it off.

By the time you buy the stripper,screw around with it (there is more to it than applying it and scraping it off) and get the frame cleaned properly for the PC,125$ is well worth it-plus blasting gives an excellent profile (surface) for PC (or any coating).

i bought some and tried it on a small part i had just to see, and your right, it maybe just better for me to just have it blasted... that seems like extensive work to get in the cracks and crevises..... Plus it says somehting about flash rust and im not really familiar with what that means,,,,

My powdercoater just bakes the old powdercoat off. He said it literally turned to ash. Then he blasts and does the new powedercoat. $175 for mine including the new powedercoat in gloss black.

I would pay the money, and get it blasted.
Anything else is a false economy, and could affect the new finish.

As stated above I have baked off old powder coat. Ask him about doing that its as easy as putting it in the oven on a higher temp for around 30-45 minutes and u can take an air nozzle and watch it fly... It turns to dust, plus it prepa the new surface while doin it.

Might even be worth it to get a cheapy blast gun, then you can use on other shit too. Later.

to remove the powder coating you can use sulphuric acid , if you are in hurry you can heat it up other wise it can work in cold condition also . try to be very careful it is very harmful .
