i saw a post not too long ago where someone used airplane stripper to remove their paint, but then painted them a different color, you may have posted on that thread actually, now that i think about it.

that one civic said:
chiming in a bit late, but there is sandpaper made specifically for stripping paint off metal. i think it's like 60 grit, or something close to that. i bought a pack at Wal Mart for around $3.
wow 60 grit. Thats a really rough sandpaper. If your gonna use sandpaper, then use something like 500. It will get the paint of and wont make it look all scratched up. Before you paint i recommend doing a wet sand to make the surface really smooth.
