So, you want to re-paint your vehicle and give it that beautiful, sparkly brand new look again, but how do you get the old paint off? Do you just paint over it? Luckily, this great blog post from Automotive Training Centres shows you the three best methods of stripping auto paint from your vehicle, including some tips and tricks that you may never have thought of!

 “Despite what you may think, automotive painting isn’t as tricky as it sounds. When you’re repainting your vehicle, the best idea is to remove the paint completely not just painting over the old layer. You’ll get a much nicer, more even coat if you strip the paint completely before repainting, and you won’t have to worry about the condition of the original paint job before you repaint. Luckily, the process is pretty straightforward and you won’t need auto technician training to know what you’re doing.”

 For the beginner just starting out in the world of auto painting, this post is absolutely fantastic, and even you seasoned pros might learn a thing or two! It turns out that stripping paint doesn’t have to be the terribly long and boring chore that you thought it was, it’s actually pretty straightforward as long as you follow these simple guidelines! Above all, though, always remember to follow directions extremely carefully and that safety should always come first.
