How can I safely strip my dash bezel?
Would soda blasting do it?
Thanks

J70,
Its the plastic guage bezel on a 69 chevelle ss. It appears that someone loaded on the paint and I just wanted to strip it and do it right. This is an original piece.

My dash was repainted by someone and they did a bad job so I used easy off oven cleaner on my dash and it worked great.
Try it in a hidden area first like I did to make sure it wont harm the plastic.
I did small sections at a time,I sprayed easy off and let it sit for a short time and used a small bristle brush to get into the crevices and rinsed it with water and repeated this until all the paint was off.
Then I washed it with soap and water.

The Easy Off and a toothbrush worked great! It even got the old-lady involved.
Thanks

Lou,

Are you sure you got her involved or was it the other way around??? I bet she had you do a real nice job on the oven since you already had the cleaner out!

My days of oven cleaning are over.

Now all I need is a heated driveway and about an acre of astro-turf...Oh, wait; never mind. I have a fifteen year old.
