    Removing paint sucks

    Since I'm selling the truck, I need to restore it to pretty much factory condition. SInce I painted the ENTIRE interior, I have to strip the paint. it takes about 20 minutes per piece for me to strip the paint (15min for the stripper to soak in and 5 to actually take the paint off).

    Just as a side note, the stripper said to wear gloves and eye protection, but who ever follows the safety precautions?

    Now my hands are burning and my left eye keeps twitching.....hmmm.

    okay, so the first couple of peices I did were small, and it did take a little while to get the paint off. I tried a bigger peice, and only like 80% came off--so I decided to repaint everything because that is going to be easier/cheaper for me (and I have to have this done by wednesday).

    Something I thought was kinda interesting as I was pulling out the car alarm today: It took me 2 years to put everything in that truck, and I am taking it all out in 3 days....and the only reason its taking me that long is because my girlfriend decided to come down here for the weekend .
