best solvent to dissolve grease and remove paint
Posted May 18 2009 - 9:58 PM
i also plan on drilling the bottom of the rotor to help with drainage . then finally clearcoating the reel when its stripped clean of all paint..
ps.. anyone have a metal side plate that i can grab.. i want to strip that too... the reel will look odd with all bare metal and a black plastic sideplate..
thanks in advance..

AS far as takeing the paint off, I use ZIP-STRIP/paint and finish remover with a stainless scrubbing pad, steel wool works but you get metal splinters. What reels are you doing this to? houseing cover?

Geuss you already took off the bearing retainer, so put the rotor-cup back on and tap the back of the cup with something that wont hurt it like a screw driver handle from side to side and your bearing will pop out with the pionion. I myself have old rotor-cups I use to do that. but I work on these reels all the time.
