I have a late 70's model Jacyco Cardinal that I love, but previous owner(s) have painted it so that it now has at least 2 coats of paint over the original. The outermost coat is pealing off in 2-3 inch flakes and the thing just looks awful. My question is, what would be a good method for removing the paint? Should I get it down to the bare aluminum skin before repainting? I really don't know how to go about tackling this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Note: I would be doing this myself out in the driveway.
