    Been getting my dx ready for paint and a firewall shave, I used aircraft striper and i do regret it i should have just sanded it with 180.. If you look at the pics you can see where the striper did not work. Im doing the brake lines tomorrow and installing a inline fuel filter. I did the wire tuck in the past so thats been over with. Ill have some more updates tomorrow.

    Sand blaster FTW!! in areas like that where everything is contoured and you have all of those nooks and crannies, you can't beat a sand blaster. You'll aggravate yourself to death trying to hand sand it all, give up, and end up with really shitty paint work.
