I have recenty purchased this van and am making great progress but.....

as you can see it is COVERED in latex pain that has been brushed on. i would like to remove it while perserving as much of the original paint that is underneath as possible. i have managed to soften up th epaint a few times while washing it and some chunks come off. any suggestions?

Ewwwww. Maybe a chemical stripper and a lot of pressure washing?

Id let a paint shop do it ... the hundred youd pay to strip it is worth the mess your going to make & clean up.

+1. Let the professionals handle this one. They have techniques and products regular people don't.

I just read about GooGone's latex paint remover. It might work for you.

Sneak into a car wash you don't like, and just act dumbfounded like it was their fault and leave quietly.

Unfortunately, house paint holds up to car washes better than that.
Ask me how I know. LOL
