Thread: WingWalk stripping and re-do

    WingWalk stripping and re-do

    I need to strip the old wingwalk compound off of the right wing of my mouse.
    It is in pretty bad shape. Planning to strip it, clean it up, alodine,
    prime, and then recoat with "fresh" wingwalk compound.

    Was surprised to find a product at WalMart called "Aircraft Remover," made
    by Klean Strip. "Strips finish & primer from metal surfaces. Heavy bodied,
    water rinsable, shop strength." It even has airplane graphics on the can.
    Unfortunately - the small print on the back of the can says, "Does not meet
    FED SPEC MIL-R-25134B." I read that line after purchasing it, but perhaps
    fortunately before spraying any of it on my airplane. Is MIL-R-25134B the
    spec that paint stripper NEEDS to meet for use on aluminum-skinned aircraft?

    Assuming the Walmart-carried product is not acceptable for aircraft use (on
    our planes), what should I use? I'm sure one of the local San Antonio
    suppliers has the real deal... Any brands I should specifically ask for or
    avoid? Other suggestions on stripping the old wingwalk or re-painting with
    new?

    Best,

    WingWalk stripping and re-do

    You mean the furniture cops won't come drag me away?

    Thanks Scott. And Bob and Mike. I'm so used to being cautious, sometimes
    I get carried away.

    Maybe it's paranoia due to being overly marketed to...

    Anyway - thanks again. I'll strip with great abandon now;>

    Mike
