My experiences with aircraft stripper have not been the greatest. I no longer use it because my projects always end up way messier than I planned them to. I find it easiest to just take my time with a lot of sand paper. If I really need to get down to bare metal media blasting is usually the best way to go.

It's funny you say that, I came to more or less the same conclusion. I think for small parts, if you don't have access to a blasting cabinet, it might be a decent option, but this was a pretty big pain in the ass. I ended up ordering a 40lb pressurized media blaster this weekend from eastwood to finish everything up, hopefully that works out well.

It's not that the stripper doesnt work, its that it doesn't really work the way you'd think - I was hoping it'd do a better job in the tight areas/creases, but in reality there's still a fair amount of manual work in scraping the paint off. That and it's a mess.

it's such a pain to use because no matter how careful you are you always get a little on your skin, and it burns just enough to be annoying. After the paint starts to bubble u, you think that you can just rinse it off. the water just makes everything a mess and the stripper stops working. overall it is just a really finicky product to use.

media blasters are a life saver as long as they're operating properly. otherwise it seems like it takes forever.

Made a list, thought it'd be helpful. It's just depressing.


Hoo boy, glad I decided to pull the clutch.

Motor was pretty clean, 416 heads (gm 305) so should have decent compression and with a decent intake and 4bbl carb, close to 300hp. Ordered a set of long tubes that should work. Front pinion seal is done, rear yoke was being a biotch, media blaster worked great though. Progress!

I have no experience restoring a jeep but, it seems challenging for me.

Haven't been around here in a while, thought I'd update on this build.

Yay filler! Eastwood makes awesome body products, their contour filler is great to work with:

Cleaned up the firewall, filled a lot of holes and built a new distributor relief:

Smoothed it out a bit and painted:

Built a new seat relief in the drivers rear fender:

Then built a paint booth in the shop, ghetto 'I don't want to asphyxiate' venting and all. Primer:

Found an older edelbrock intake mani & 4bbl carb, +20hp valve covers and air cleaner:

And just this afternoon, set the tub on the frame. Big day!

Got the motor back together, and fired it up this weekend. Ran great after setting the timing etc, super happy. Few little things to finish up the drivetrain and then I can move on to wiring and putting the fenders/seats/windshield etc back in. Might actually finish this pile before the end of June.

That thing is going to be fun. I bet you're going to need some wheelie bars for it.

Built the exhaust, just need to weld on a couple turndowns. Limited by the length of the vehicle, fender-exit headers only left me about 22" total for a collector, mufflers, and some sort of turndown/out.



Oh yea, these 14" glasspacks will really quiet it down...surprisingly not toooo bad. This weekend hopefully finishing the throttle pedal (have to adapt a later-model CJ7 pedal/lokar throttle cable). If the temps are reasonable on Sunday I'll finish up the paintwork (hood, tailgate, grill), and I'll be read to start laying out the wiring and putting the rest of the body back together.
