SB-200 Case cleaning

Took a few minutes to strip the remaining green Heathkit paint from the case of the SB-200. As the case is Aluminum, I have to be careful what I use to strip the paint with. Sanding will only strip the paint from the outer surfaces of the case, however there are hundreds, maybe thousands of small holes that have paint in them as well. Chemical striping is probably the easiest way to get all the nooks and crannies. So I stoped by the auto parts store and picked up a can of "Tal-Strip" It is a spray on coatings remover, safe for aircraft use, and use on Aluminum.
