I've been stripping my 67 fastback interior fiberglass using the "Easy Off oven cleaner" method, which has been much harder than described in threads here. I'm actually on my 3rd application, and I still don't have clean panels yet. I guess the PO who painted right on top of the factory original paint made it much tougher for the Easy Off to strip off the multiple layers of paint?

Anyway, here's my question... Once I have the panels completely stripped down to the fiberglass, do I need to use a specially formulated primer when spraying the raw fiberglass, or does regular self-etching automotive primer work best?

Thanks.

can these fibre glass panels be spray painted, or do you have to use the dye, as i am about to change the interior color of my car too?

Thanx Ian.

I used the easy off to strip, normal over the counter spray can primer and interior paint from the Mustang shop. No issues so far.

Thanks!!!!

Lacquer paint. I'm not sure about the primer, it was rust oleum auto primer.

Paint

The Easy Off HD with lye has to be used in temperatures at least 70*; colder than that, it will take several applications to remove the paint. I also recommend using a stiff plastic wire brush to facilitate paint removal.
