How difficult is this process? Would be good solution for my Lavender Stolen cranks

I did the drive side arm in about ten minutes,but it seems the other arm is barely peeling.So tonight I just submerged half the crank arm(will do the other half tomorrow)in a jar full of aircraft stripper.

Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

Another little upgrade to my sons Haro.
No pic of it installed yet. But it’s done. Lightened the front end a bit more.

Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

My little mans Haro (My first build). Got new Haro 78 series forks installed yesterday. Not too much left to upgrade at this point besides the frame :D

He’s working on his wheelies. The lighter bars and forks have made a noticeable difference.

Re: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

Just finished the final process of rawing the crank set.Once I cleaned off all the stripped paint and hit the arms with the wire wheel,it gave them a industrial raw look.Now I need to decide if I want to clear them,or have them painted or powdered.

I feel like the clear would be the coolest. You'd keep the raw color and be able to really see those beautiful welds.
