See if you can get aircraft paint remover from Kleanstrip. You will find it to be a bit stronger but with that said I can tell you it will take multiple applications to move the factory finish and almost impossible to remove the red oxide primer on the body of the car with stripper. Sanding will be required.

Exhibit A: After many applications of stripper. The red primer just wouldn't budge. I had no choice but to sand the rest of the primer off with my DA sander.

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Original Paint Removal

Hi Everybody,

as said before I am currently restoring my 1956 Sedan de Ville.
As I am doing all the body work I am currently removing all the original paint.
I am trying not to hurt the phosphate layer of the metal so sanding is out of the question.
I have tried media blasting (soda) - which is a huge mess when you do it yourself (although I do like it).

So I have used chemical paint stripper from Rustoleum (the green one) which had the top layer come off really nice (the car was repainted).
However the original Cadillac paint underneath just gets all slimy and reacts completly different.

Has anybody had any experience with this?

Best Timo
