Removing Paint

So im in the process of sanding my car to paint it.

Its taking SOOOO long even with a sander. Would it be okay if I use some aircraft remover to take off all the paint and primer to take it down to the metal? Kinda like how people here do it with the valve cover...

I'm obviously gonna have it professionally painted but doing all the body/prep myself :D

Re: Removing Paint

I think it would be ok. ask the body shop who is painting it. and watch the trim.

Re: Removing Paint

man i've used aircraft remover an the paint fell off, but you get this sticky nasty, paint goo mess and it kinda sticks to the car at the same time as its coming off. it'll work, but personally i'd rather just sand it down smooth and paint it. no reason to worry about getting to the metal unless its for wieght purposes, plus if it sits very long at bare metal it'll rust like a 77 gremlin, even over night for 2 nights outside.
