Hello,

It's been a while since I have posted ( I used to be JM Wolfe - now I am Wolfej1 if anyone really cares)

Enough of that - here is the question and the advice I need:

I recently purchased a set of Interstate saddlebags for my GL1100 on fleabay for $50.00. I would like to repaint them and I started sanding them down only to realize that getting the clearcote and the pinstripe off is a major task:(. Does anyone have any advice on a good procedure getting the clearcote and pinstripes off so the bags can be primered and painted?

Thanks in advance

JM Wolfe

Jack, jsmith24 was repainting his bike, he might be able to give you some advice. look up his member profile and fire off a PM to him. I know the subject has come up before about prepping so someone around here has the answer to your problem.

JM, the answer to this was in a thread just recently. Do a search on pinstripes and it should come up.

Does that mean you've cleaned up that miserable shed you've got or are you planning on storing it at your neighbor's so you won't have to buy gas?

sorry to say, but the only way is elbow grease, you might start with 220 wet/dry at first, but QUICKLY move to higher grits so you do not have scratches. using a filler/pimer with a 600 grit follow up helps as well filling in the spots

also, do NOT use paint stripper it will ruin the plastic.... and try taking an anti-inflamtory before the elbow grease... much more effective

The adhesive from the stripes seems to grip into the plastic, that's whythe marks are so hard to sand out.
