Hey guys, My names Ethan and I’m from Colorado. Today I picked up my first Gbody, a 78 Monte Carlo, 305/th350 was a factory red/red and someone did a very thick paint job that I’ll take off eventually.

Welcome. Looks like you have a pretty good start there. Judging by the pictures it looks like it needs rear frame rails?

The frame rails are there and perfectly intact, I didn’t see any cancer on the underside either so I’m glad it has good bones.

Is that what would take it off best? The person who (home) painted it didn’t primer it first, but the paint job is ~ twice as thick as my toenail. Hell, I could peel it off with my fingers lol. Let me look through paint threads...

I’ve been using aircraft stripper for over 40 years. It’s the best out there. It works best when you dab it on with a brush, don’t paint it on. Then cover the area with plastic after putting it on. It works better with les brush strokes or air going across it.
