Product Spotlight: Goudey Paint Stripper

It is time to start stripping the body and chassis and we were faced with a problem. The underside of the car had lots of thick rubbery undercoating that is extremely difficult to media blast off. The media just bounces off of this surface and, when you pay a media blaster by the hour, the job of stripping the car can get super expensive. Some internet searches confirmed the problem as most people struggle terribly to remove undercoating with combinations of heat, petroleum distillates, and general back breaking labour. It looked to be a hellish job.

Enter our savior: Goudey Paint Stripper. Manufactured right here in Toronto by the John E. Goudey Corporation , this chemical stripper astounded us with its strength and effectiveness. The photos will tell the tale as the stripper soaked through rubbery surfaces that were over 1/4 of an inch thick. Removal required nothing more than a regular putty knife and minimal effort.

With results this good, we will be extending the application to the body and further minimizing our media blasting bill.
