#1 Paint stripping engine frames.???

Post by lee-type » Thu Nov 01, 2018 7:46 pm

Good evening guys.

Is it ok to have the engines frames chemically stripped?

Im wondering if the brazing is ok with this process? It would be nice to have them dipped so the inside of the tubes get cleaned to.

If anyone has had it done who did you use?


Cheers

Hi....whats your name...please try to put it with your car model in the signature area......there is no common hollow access for the frame.....also with any chemical process you need to be sure that any chemical going in actually gets back out......also some of the processes use extreem heat ovens first to burn off paint filler etc......Steve
