Paint Removal With Soda

I’m effectively reestablishing an old Honda bike and one of the essential advances is paint evacuation. This isn’t the most engaging piece of the cycle, however an essential advance to return to that “like new” look. This specific bicycle is 30 years of age and has a considerable lot of surface rust yet diamond painting  no underlying rust harm.

There are various items and methods out there for paint evacuation. Some are simpler than others. Some are more harmless to the ecosystem than others. I’ve utilized “Airplane” paint stripper a little and it is frightful stuff. The most concerning issue with substance strippers,


particularly on complex parts with heaps of little hiding spots, is getting all of the stripper buildup eliminated subsequent to eliminating the paint. In my work to be thoughtful to the climate, and with little examination, I head down to the “Rebate Tool Store” (You know the one) to get a major sack of pop, gloves, hood, respirator… also, a couple of different things to securely eliminate paint from my old bike outline.

All prepared and amped up for the work before me, I turn on the blower and get to work. Incidentally, the work is slow, extremely sluggish… several days and 20 hours of impacting later I’m not even half done! What the $%#!

I get back on the web for somewhat more exploration. After a couple look, incredibly, I discover that many paint producers don’t suggest soft drink impacting. Why, as a result of potential paint grip issues. That is incredible! What do I do now. The casing is covered with pop. The means from here to free my casing of the soft drink buildup is agonizing… pressure washing with cleanser and heaps of water. Then, at that point, a day to dry.

So what would be an ideal next step? The casing is just half finished!

Significantly more exploration on the web and I track down that the coal slag item “Dark Diamond” is somewhat protected, harmless to the ecosystem, and economical as well. Presently this stuff is VERY rough, so kindly focus on the thing you are doing and consistently be completely equipped while impacting with it.

Astonishing! That is the most straightforward depiction. In only four hours I impacted the whole casing and it went from a wreck to absolutely spotless, smooth, paint and rust free!
