Its more of a 'stripper' that you'd apply or soak the thing in, then forget about it for a week.. it's quicker with nitromors!



just :wink:

It depends on the paint to be honest. It also works better on things you dont want to strip. Accidentally pour some over a cop car and it will strip in seconds. but pour it over something you really want to remove the paint off and it'll take forever. guaranteed!

Theres one.

The new nitromors is a fa*ny. I was doing it with my bare hands. Before that would have burnt. I could probably put it in my bloody eyes now!

New brake fluid is rubbish too, for stripping paint that is.
Paint stripping discs from frosts are pretty good and leave a finish you can prime.

I bought some generic stuff from a hardware shop near me in September (ish) which worked a treat, a little runnier than nitromors but still effective, worth hunting around for perhaps? Hopefully they're not enforcing that Dec 11 ban on selling old stock to harshly....
