Doing some more work on the 2795DX.

After inspecting the paint, I've opted for stripping rather than blasting. Less aggressive.

Applying some evil, foul smelling paint striper to remove the 36 year old paint, and about 4 layers of other assorted cellulose spray paint other idiots have applied over the years.

20 minutes later.... a test scrape.. looking good.

A further 20 minutes and after a rinse... most of it gone.

It's having another soak to remove the last, stubborn bits and pieces and get as much bare metal showing before a final rinse and dry.

Back soon.
