Paint stripper on aluminum?
I just bought a small early 70's fishing boat.The aluminum on this thing is suprisingly thick.Many years of paint needs to come off this thing though.The guy I bought it from said he used house paint.It has lots of flaking so I figured a good pressure washing will take care of some of it.What I want to know is,will certain kinds of paint stripper damage aluminum and the rivets in the ribbing? Personally I would like to get it back to natural aluminum look and maybe clear coat it for protection from corrosion. Any ideas are appreciated.
Its easier to fix a complaining cj than a complaining wife/gf.
