Question Removing Powdercoat?

I want to remove the powdercoat on my PGP so I can polish the brass than just clearcoat it. I heard you can use oven cleaner, anyone ever tried this?

I removed a bit of it in parts you can't see (where the grip frame would cover) with a polishing bit on my Dremel, and it worked well but you can see some lines and streaks from it, even after using Brasso.

Any ideas? Someone said oven cleaner with Lye is a no-no, but than someone else said that's what anodizers use :p

The best way to remove powdercoat is Bead blasting, but if you dont have access to that, you can use aircraft paint stripper.

Anodizers can use LYE because it works on ano. the chemicals wont touch paint, but eat ano right up.

Using a Dremel will not give you a very uniform polish, the polishing surface is just to small. Check out my little page I did, when stripped and polished my Maverick.

Most automotive stores have them, it can be regular automotive stripper too.

Thanks, gonna pick some up tomorrow. What do I do, just soak it in the stripper for a few hours, or do I have to scrub at it?
