    Just wondered what people use to remove the paint on their rocker covers and other pasts? Want something fairly strong and quick. Heard nitro mors is weak these days...

    I only use thinner or get it bead blasted, nitro moors is ok but you need the make sure it's all off as the tiniest trace will react with the new paint

    I've used nitromors in the past, it does work but wasn't as easy to remove as i thought. Definitely time consuming.

    Langlow strip away pro is the best paint stripper that I've used in a long time, it actually works unlike nitromors etc

    I used Nitromors (new formula) 2 years ago and it worked alright. However there were some sections that took some time to scrape off. I think if you are trying to find some powerful commercial paint strippers it will be hard to get due to EU regulations.

    I used rags soaked in thinners, left them on top of the cover for about 12hrs then just steamed the paint off.

    Just to add, I've stripped large cars all over with the one I recommended. Nitromors would barely blister the surface
