[Chrysler300] Old undercoating removal

Once again, advice from Club members and use of this Listserver has been invaluable.

Use of heat to soften the undercoating worked very well for me.  I did use a 1500 watt heat gun for some work, but mainly used my kerosene fired torpedo heater (outside in the open) and heated from the non-undercoated side of the fender or inner fender.   Once the interface between the undercoating and the metal was hot, the undercoating scraped / peeled right off.   After that I brushed on paint thinner and could easily remove any final trace or remnant of undercoating.

With the heater on the ground it was a little cumbersome shifting the fender around to keep the area being heated about 6 - 8” away from the heater, hold the fender, and scrape at the same time; but by the time I got to the last item (an inner fender with lots of undercoating), that took less than an hour.

So, thanks again
