removing spray bedliner from exterior?

I just purchased my second jeep, and the previous owner had sprayed bed liner on parts of the jeep. It looks like he didn't sand it first, as some of it is chipping off. Most doesn't want to come off though. Anyone have an idea. I'm trying to avoid damaging the paint under it. If I can. Thanks for any suggestions.

If most is stuck good he probably did sand first but areas that were overlooked or scuffed inadequately are the ones with poor adhesion.

What's the final results you are looking for if you can remove this?
More bedliner or paint?

Looks like it will ruin the paint getting it off. BUT you can try tar remover,xylene or lacquer thinner. Some or all may cause damage to the original paint.
Good luck.

I'm going to be putting some black diamond plate rocker side panels. But they only go about half way up the body to the door sill. So I want to get it off there and back to factory paint and then put the panels on.

You won't get away without damaging the paint. I would just use a paint stripper and repaint. I have had really good luck with Klean-Strip aircraft stripper http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...ver+-+stripper If you use the stripper make sure to have plenty of air flow or a good respirator along with chemical gloves its some nasty stuff. I had chemo therapy nitrile gloves on and it ate through them and ended up burning a large section of my hand.

Well I took a new scraper to it. And it is coming off, but not all and what is coming off is leaving small bits that I cant scrape. So I'm going to try and get what i can off and then try a RAZR blade scraper tk get the small stuff. Worst case is I have to repaint.

Thanks for the help guys.

Good luck. Previous owner of my TJ covered the entire inside of the tub with that crap. I had to go down to bare metal to get it off.

Should not unless it is rattle can paint. Most two part paints are at least moderately resistant to MEK.

This is correct. A standard lab test for high end paints is MEK rub resistance. If auto paint came off easily with MEK it would be a big problem.

Paint remover, scraping or sanding is the best way to get this clean to redo the way you want it. The kleen-strip aircraft remover mentioned below is prob the best I have seen and used.

an update or anyone who read the deleted post remember how this turn out. I've read all the other threads on this issue and wire wheel aircraft stripper seem to be the most posted. I unwisely put bedliner in the tub of my jeep 7 or so years ago when I first bought it. Now I'm restoring and would like to put por-15 down and paint the surface the color I want.
