Houseboat Chemicals - paint removal from fiberglass surfaces on house boats
Any houseboat chemicals for paint removal from fiberglass
When it comes to houseboat chemicals for paint removal from fiberglass, what can I try? I tried to remove an old painted name on the side of my fiberglass house boat.
I used Citri-strip and it did a fairly good job, but has left a shadow of prior painting and an orange cast to the area I used the orange Citri Strip on. Have tried lacquer thinner, denatured alcohol and a bunch of cleaners with no luck.
I'm going to try to do some sanding this weekend, but would appreciate any suggestions. I'm sure some of you have gone through this before.
Thanks, John in Kentucky Reply - Answer
Well John, I can understand the frustration, as removing old paint or stains from fiberglass is not easy.
I have had some good success with Acetone, yet use it sparingly, and be ready to neutralize the area quickly afterwards with some water.
Acetone seems to work well on decals, glues, paints, adhesives etc... however I always recommend testing an area first before going all out.Lastly
, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their houseboat paint and fiberglass cleaning experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.
