Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Brass flexible horn tubing
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Garry Potter on Monday, October 10, 2016 - 02:35 pm:

I bought a nice brass horn with tapered brass flexible brass tubing about 6 feet long. The horn and tubing are in excellent shape except somebody painted the horn and tubing. This horn was on a large British car probably Rolls Royce, but I plan to use it on our new Model T speedster.
What is the best and safest method to remove the paint, especially on the tubing coils which have paint between each piece of the bent tubing.
Thanks

Aircraft paint stripper from your home convenience store.

Thanks for your idea. I am concerned the stripper would remain in the crevices of the flexible horn tubing and be a persistent problem with seepage for a long time

Gary, if you're uneasy about the stripper, try soaking it for an hour or so totally immersed in good 'ol lacquer thinner. Won't hurt the brass, strips off almost anything, and vaporizes totally dry in minutes. I bet it'll do the trick.

That is never the case with chemical stripper. Lots of folks with an unreasonable and baseless fear on the internet though.

Follow the directions on the can.

Used brake fluid, it's free

It appears that everyone has a chemical recommendation, rather than abrasive
Thanks for the input
Garry
