That got your attention !!!

I'm restoring a rare downhill mountain bike ..it is all aluminium and parts have been painted e.g the swing arm.

Question:

Can anybody recommend an effective paint stripper for use on aluminium?

The modern Nitromors is rubbish compared to the now illegal toxic stuff which was very good..

Plan B is take apart and get blasted.

Starchem paint stripper available from car paint suppliers, is what I would use, it is more like the Nitromors of old and is recommended for use on alloy wheels.

Just a thought but how about popping into one of these places that repair damaged alloy wheels . They have to remove the paint on the alloy and may remove it from your frame . OK it costs more than a tin of paint stripper . But a hell of a lot quicker and better . Worth giving some a try . idea

You could get it blasted with bicarbonate of soda without taking it apart. You would have to mask of any parts that you do not want blasted with some tape or material that is resistant.

It is the least aggressive of the blasting materials and can be washed and dissolved with plain water.

If it's modern Nitromors you are using you may as well pour water on it. It's rubbish.

I use Starchem Synstrip. It contains dicloromethane which is what they took out of Nitromors

Half the price too. 5 litres for 25 quid
