    When painting these should I use airplane stripper to get any clear coating off? OR can I just sand it, clean, prime, and spray? Thanks.

    If you dont go down to bare aluminum you wont even have to prime.

    Yea I just layed down a soft layer of primer, to fill any small scratches and such, I sanded it down with 320 grit, and I could tell I didnt need to prime it.. It looks good though, Im about to throw down the first coat of paint.

    should bring back memories of the window sill he used to chew on as a child.
