i started the paint stripping on my 82 this morning, getting it ready for the color change. i will sand the rest off. not stripping all the way down to the glass. it comes off very easy. here are the pics.

Shame to see that, IMO, it was a very pretty blue, looked good in Pix too,...I had a '70 Lemans/GTO with a similar color....

the paint was in great shape, it was like a mirror. when i painted it @ 2 yrs ago i sanded it back down and recleared it.
i was just tired of that color, it was to close to my Grand Sport blue. when i went to the NCM this year i saw a 90 or 91 corvette that was steel blue and i knew then what color my 82 would be soon:laughing:
here is some more pics. and 1 from when i painted it 2 yrs ago

:surprised OH NOOO!!!:surprised You used chemical stripper. Not so good for the long run cause it'll leak through down the line.

Not if He uses Acetone or equivalent to neutralize the stripper when finished
and then throughly cleans the surface before doing any prep or body work. :thumbsup:
