Well as some of you might know, I recently painted my case.

I was just wondering... Whats the best way to remove the paint from inside my case? or should I just paint over it with Primer then the colour I want?

Soap and water. lol i really don't know

Isn't there some kinda formula or chemical or something that you can get at OSH or ACE or somewhere that's a "paint remover?" If that stuff hasn't been invented, it should.

lol. Well there is Turpentine. That is good stuff.

I was thinking of basically soaking the whole case in a big tub of it, and then hosing it down or something

failing that, I have no idea

Lol. Got anybody you know or any shops around that can sand blast it? It'll be a pretty penny but it'll damn sure remove that paint, lol.

If you can find a place near you that has a media-blaster (sand-blaster) that would probably be the easiest and fastest way to do it. Otherwise you just have to try the different types of paint removers out there, like that aircraft stuff. The stuff that has poison warnings are probably the best, the bigger the warning the better.
