Aircraft Paint Remover is not as special as it sounds, especially since it says not to use it on aircraft. I hate removing paint. I detest the way it never comes out of the cracks in the welds.
Painting bare aluminum is a pain in the ass. But since the factory paint was falling off the standing platform on the used pontoon I recently bought I felt obligated to do something about it before I owned it long enough not to care. Plus that damned thing is slick as hell under slip-on rubber shoes and a little preventative care is never a bad thing.
Also, while I sit here watching the paint dry... what do think about these FB comment boxes?
