Best Paint Stripper ever....

Recommended Posts

I wanted to share this because I'm so impressed with this paint stripper. It's called Tal-Strip by Bondo (it even comes in an aerosol can) I first used it when I was rebuilding the engine for my tractor restoration project and it not only cut through the grease on the block, but it dissolved the burnt on dirt, grime, and paint - and didn't hurt the aluminium block!

Last week I started on the white pieces for the tractor (wheels, weights, grill, and the console) I purchased a gallon of this paint stripper from Advanced Auto for about $25 and used only a little bit. It stripped the paint on the wheels and the paint came off with just a soft rub of steel wool. The best part is it seemed to soften the rust on the wheels and made it easy to steel wool them smooth. The paint stripper absorbs into the loose paint and flakes off like saw dust - no gooey clean-up.... and any clean up you do need to do you can do with just water because it's water-soluble... cool huh???

The next step was the Grill, and then Prime and Paint...

I found a perfect color match for the almond (Rustoleum industrial Almond)

And next was prime and paint on the weights.... I am planning to strip the console this weekend, and prime and paint - then off to the orange parts...

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
