stripping the coating off a 98c
I've got a Tippmann 98c project in mind. Any idea about a quick method for stripping the black off a 98C ? I know that Greased Lightning is supposedly pretty good for taking anno off, if an object is allowed to soak. Or, maybe a standard paint stripper will work? Anyone with experience in this? Thanks!

Is the coating on a 98c even considered ano? You could always try some lye and water... (use rubber gloves with gauntlets and goggles!!!!! ).. if it's ano that will take it off. If it's paint then you can use something like naval jelly.. that would eat it off for sure

Model 98 Customs (and many other Tippmann markers) are not anno'd, that's paint. Read this article over on VM68.com and it'll explain why they're not anno'd (or weldable, for that matter). I'd say strip it off with your favorite flavor of paint stripper (remember to do a test patch somewhere like under a grip panel that is not viewable to the public and won't make your marker malfunction, just in case the chemical eats the body away entirely).

I can't dumb it down to your level because I'm scared of heights.

I had a hellofa time stripping my 98c. I tryed varous thinners and strippers, even tried easy-off. Eventualy I got to the sandpaper/dremel route and still couldnt get that crap off. In the end I took it to school and droped it in the sand blaster. Only took bout 5 minutes.
I'd recommend sandblasting it ifyou really want it off quickly and easily other wise good luck let us know how that turned out.

If it is indeed a painted one... I normally just sand them to a matte finish and then paint over them it actually makes a great primer..
