  2. My you do have big fingers Have you tried Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner for removal of the paint I used this when stripping down the tubes on MTB brush on the cleaning fluids and leave steeping for couple of hours but keep checking depending on the size and how fragile the part then wash parts with detergent to get all the cleaning fluids off recommend using rubber gloves when handling the chemicals they can cause a nasty itch Not a word about rubber gloves and Itching you lot beefy
