86 Caprice Wagon

Post by Roadking41a on March 27th 2008, 2:26 pm

Well My son took my F150 and left me with no paint project. So I took my Wife's wagon away from her. I'll start working on it after we get back from Kansas next month.

Nope not going to keep the woodgrain. But I'm going Yellow with Black stripes. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get the woodgrain off.

Heat gun, finger nail, maybe plastic blade (not a real razor blade) to lift the corners. Heat and pull. Or wait for a hot summer day instead of heat gun, park in the sun for a few hours then start puling. Sometimes it comes off easy, sometimes in little brittle pieces.

You're going to have a WHOLE LOT of fun getting that wood grain off!! affraid Been there, done that. What I used was a propane torch with electric igniter, a razor blade, fingernails, and a whole lotta cussin' to get it all off. Then there's the gooey residue left over. I used lacquer thinner, a rag, and a lot of patience.

Yessir, it'll come off. But you'll wish you never started!

I didn't mean to make it sound easy, Coconut is correct, it is a lot of work, but doable. There is also a vinyl removal wheel you can get to attach to your drill, works like an eraser to strip the vinyl. The residue will come off, of course I use an chemical available in the vinyl industry that makes it easy. I'd tell you but it is a trade secret. Smile If the word got out I wouldn't be able to charge such high prices for removing vinyl. lol!

Ok, it is Rapid Remover and is available at any vinyl supply outlet. But at $30 a gallon you might be better off going the lacquer thinner route since you would use less than a pint to remove the glue anyway.
