removing paint from chatterbait heads

Recommended Posts

I have a few of the original Chatter Bait 1 oz. Ledgemaster Chatterbait lures. The ones I have left have black painted heads from the factory. I would like to repaint te heads to white. What solvent would be best to use yo help remove the black original paint and what paint (epoxy, etc) would be best to use for painting the hrads white? (epoxy paint, etc.)

Thanks, Steve Griffin, Alabama

Hard to recommend what will best remove the original paint since we don't know what the paint or clearcoat is. Acetone will disolve finish about as well as anything as long as there is no plastic on the lure to get eaten up by it. When all is said and done, I usually resort to scraping finish off lead heads with a knife. There are various options for painting the heads: Powder paint is probably the most durable. I'd check the Wire Bait forum for more opinions.

Not familiar with the lure, but MEK, methyl ethyl ketone will put a whoopin on acetone as a stripper. Best stuff for the job besides methylene chloride strippers. But, if there's plastic involved, don't even bother. It will eat the plastic instantly.
