    In ChCh the Resene shops offer two types of paint stripper. One will work.
    Alternatively, Tony Pole had a stripping bath. A W Pole Electroplaters.

    Tergo Strip. Don't know about using it on aluminium though. I've used it to take off the type of paint they put on planes behind the jet exhausts.

    That shit was brilliant. I am getting an NC30 front rim powdercoated but I will get all the shitty old paint off it first with that bath. Did a brilliant job on a bunch of pushbike parts I had done.
