I'm just starting up a restoration of a Sandblaster, the previous owner used spray paint  on the body and it looks terrible. I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to remove the paint or should I just prime and paint the body. I welcome any suggestion you may have. I was wondering also if it was something you could use to make the plastic a little less brittle.

There are paint removers for plastics at auto parts, paint stores. You might try brake fluid also.
I see by your avatar you are enamored by a certain part of the female anatomy, welcome to the forum.

i'd use the brake fluid, stick it in a bread bag and dump in appx. 1/2 cup of brake fluid, muck it around and let it set overnight, wash off with water, no soap needed.

nice avatar :^ )...

Removing Paint from a Cox car Empty I'll try the cheap way first

Post  Sandblaster Thu Apr 03, 2014 7:14 pm

Thanks for the return post, I think I'll try the cheap way first with a little brake fluid, I have a bottle of brake fluid that's been on my shelf for years I think it's just right for the job.
