3 posts in this topic

Is there some specific concoction used to strip the paint off of some of the beat up crankbaits i have....i want to revive them but m having a hard time stripping the old paint....or do i even bother stripping them and just paint over them?

I usually just sand the finish to get it smooth and repaint. If the bait is really beat up you may need to use a couple different grits to get it smooth again. I was cleaning some Cordell Super Spots recently and put them in iso alcohol to soak. A few hours later when I picked one up, the clear and paint basically fell off. Don't know if this works on other baits but it might be worth a try. The iso alcohol won't mess with the plastic like acetone or some other chemicals will.

There are several guys on here that sell blanks. Predator, Vanndalizer, Bustin Bass, as well as some others.
