Default undercoat removal

easy way to remove undercoating from the underside of car in my garage with the car on jack stands without sandblasting( too messy in my small space, plus I am renting.)

I used paint stripper and a scapper. it worked great. then after words i used a thin coat of paint stripper and used a pressure washer and then used a wire brush. you dont need to use a pressure washer, but it helps to really knock off that coating.

best way I know of...
Propane torch, and a metal scraper..
Warm up the undercoating (don't catch it on fire)
Then scrape it off.
Only work about a 6"-10" patch at a time..
P.I.T.A. but works really good, and takes about 3 hours to do the complete underside of a car

if I use this method I will have to drop the gas tank and make sure the fuel lines are drained and dry so I don't cause an accident. three hours is alot less time than I thought.
