    Default removing paint from a coleman canoe

    Hi, I just picked up a 17' coleman canoe. The canoe is the standard Coleman hard plastic, the previous owner tried painting it various colors. I'm trying to remove all the old stuff and get back down to the original red color. What's the best and quickest way to remove the old paint?



    Thanks,
    Ben

    I think I'd try some stripper up high above the water line and make sure it doesn't eat the plastic and if it cleans it up thats what I'd do.

    ""Paint remover""" like ironatris said is the best way to do it is try A remover if
    .
    it don't work try a differerent one till you get a remover that will work for you
    .
    just try it on the canoe above the water line frist [small place] to see if it will
    .
    effect the plastic good luck post a photo after you get finished so we all can
    .
    see your handy work

    In some areas, they can get a hydroblast technique to get paint off the surface...

    Default Canoe paint

    is it worth the effort, .
    all the time spent on removing the paint could be spent on the ponds , around town an get more enjoyment out of it, an get afew fish I hope, unless it leaks, use it as is, the fish don't care I think,

    I'd like to know what kind of paint they used?

    I'd like to paint my red Canoe black.. (yea I know heresy, but the red has faded a bit to pink and looks like crap)

    Try some over cleaner a strong one they take paint off and don't hurt the plastic.
