Saw this online and was wondering if it would work for a paint stripper on the GT's!

I know it will melt the camouflage off of a shotgun stock.

In reading the article the author says it is very hard to neutralize the action so I'm thinking it would affect the paint job after stripping. I heard somewhere that aircraft paint stripper is the way to go

WoW! who knew? I like the citrus based paint stripper. Works pretty good and doesn't smell too bad either.

I know my dad used the bug spray to take the haze off his headlight lenses.
I think he put it on a clean rag, so it did not come in contact with the paint.

Brake fluid will damage many off the shelf paints. I used Utech epoxy primer on a project vehicle. Brake fluid has no effect on that primer. I would not use bug spray to remove paint as they say,,difficult to neutralize.  It may come back to haunt you after a respray. Had a deck lid on car that kept blistering after painting.  Seems whatever permeated metal..Sanded lid down to bare metal and resprayed and paint would blister after a few days...ended up replacing deck lid...
