use nitromors. its a paint stripper , just buy some and read the instructions on the back.

When its raw youll have to clearcoat it or itll rust

why'd you up this thread that's over a year old?

there's a few ways you can strip a frame. one is with paint stripper. i personally used a grinder because i didn't want to spend any money. the grinder takes a lot longer than paint stripper though. we spent an entire weekend grinding the paint off my friend's frame (although the frame did have like 10 coats on it, with the originally s&m bbq black paint which is tough to strip), forks, bars, and cranks.

when i painted my bike white i used paint stripper and it took maybe 30 minutes to get all the paint off and it was very clean. after i painted it white i rawed it half-way with my friend's grinder which took maybe an hour.

I am "rawing" my frame right now, get some really coarse sandpaper and start rubbin, or use paint stripper....be sure to clear-coat

Instead of clear coating you could rub the frame with oil, leave it overnight somewhere hot and wipe off the excess in the morning. Even with clear coat it would rust eventually as lacquer is porous.

My friend has had his frame rawed for over a year, no obvious rust

get a sander and get the most of the paint off and use finer sand paper for the rest then clear coat it all.
dont use really rough paper or ull damage the metal

Heavy Paint Stripper. I went to my local Home Depot and asked a worker for a stripper strong enough to remove multiple layers of powder coat, unfortunately she pointed me to Acetone...which is practically extra strength nail polish remover. I found Permatex Gasket Remover at an Autozone and that worked perfectly.
