• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Hi All,
I have been told that the best stuff to shift epoxy based paints from metalwork is a chemical called "Dasic D23" so i have gone and bought some. On reading the health and safety warnings on the can it seems it is evil personified! Not only will it strip you to the bone it will kill all the worlds first born when you open the can!! Does anybody have any experience of the chemical and what is the best way to handle it?
Also, when the metal is stripped what is the best way to prevent corrosion prior to painting? my inspector will be away for a while and he wants to see the parts in their "raw" state!
