    Paint is Phantom Black isn't it?

    As for stripper I'm not sure on that, just sand it?

    Phantom Black is correct as the previous poster mentioned. Why do you want to strip it? It's easier to sand it and use the original paint as your base layer.

    I just thought it sounded easier to strip it. I will get the heat gun out and try and take the stickers off and then sand it though... Seems thats what is recommended.

    Have done a lot of cowls. Be very careful with the heat gun on the decals as if you get the cowl too hot the paint starts bubbling and then the fun has begun! I always use low wattage on the gun. JMO
