    i used that stuff on my car and it took off 4 coats of paint ... i was not sure about using it on alum. i figured it would stain it to the point it would not buff out

    I usually dont bother with stripping paint. Sanding usually takes care of riding your part of paint.

    I tried this stuff call Stryp-ese. It's a toluolene (or however the hell you spell it) based stripper and it took a LONG time to even bubble the paint on any painted metal. Too much work so now I just chuck it in the blast cabinet and go at it with glass bead. The resulting surface isn't too bad - nothing the greaseless compounds and some elbow grease can't handle. I've had good results blasting at 80psi at around 6-7cfm.
