With the mechanicals mostly done, we could not ignore the body on our Tornado Typhoon any longer. The first step would be to strip the old paint off. Initially, our thought was to just strip the car by hand. The very poorly applied, green paint job needed to be completely removed.

We took simple paint scrapers and simply scraped the badly prepped and applied paint right off. The idea was to remove the paint, but conserve the gelcoat. This turned out to be easier than we thought.
