How to remove spray paint from Aluminum and SS?
I picked up a screaming deal on a VSC Phantom with an elusive 14" DYE boomstick, one catch: the whole rig was assaulted with a rattle can and now I want to get every fleck of this spray paint off--any suggestions?
Thanks in advance

Seriously, that's what it's called. You can get it at Pep Boys. Works like a charm.Aircraft Remover

I agree the aircraft remover is the best way to go. It comes in spraybombs too which is very handy. Sometimes if they used cheap spraypaint you can just wipe it right off with laquer thinner.

I've gone about it the much more troublesome way. Let everything soak in really hot dish water and scrape with fingernails or something plastic.
It works, albeit slowly.
Don't use nailpolish remover. Even if you have it around the house. It works, but the fumes are awful.
The correct question is, "Why don't I need another gun?"
How strange to see a lagomorph of such bravery.

Most good solvents have doomsday like fumes.
Go over to ace hardware or something and look through the solvents, towards the bottom shelf. Look for the most toxic thing you can find it will probably work best.
Fortunately annodized aluminum wont be really harmed by most stuff that works really well on paint so youl get the paint off long before any anno damage happens. GL

Try oven cleaner. It is supposed to work on all kinds of paint for removal.
However, I can't be responsible for the amount of how much paint comes off

I used Greased Lightening on the tires of a truck one time....Took the paint right off the stock ford rims..
Had some very clean rubber there though.
