While we could have continued to remove the old paint with the DA sander, we wanted to showcase another method for removing the old color, namely the potent aircraft stripper. This is a harsh chemical that actually eats away the old paint. McGann grabbed a can, a mask, glove, and using a wire brush, applied it in thin sheets across the roof. From there we let each sheet sit for 10-15 minutes to dry before we began to scrape the old paint off.
