Not sure about the plastic parts, I just painted over the old paint, but to take the paint off the receivers you can use Aircraft Remover. Never used it, but it's some good stuff.

Sand it nice & smooth too for a good surface for the new paint to stick to.
It'll help removing the old paint too. Very Happy

What will work weel to is a wire wheel. Just make sure it's a brass one or it will chew the metal up. Go slow and deliberate, take your time.

odd that there was a chemical reaction....did you spray a heavy coat first?...usually its like several light coats ( i go super light) and allow each coat about 30mins to an hr to dry...

aircraft paint remover when applied to metal will actually "peel" the factory paint off...

Lol strange, even when I painted badly it didn't do that, chemicals in the paint that when you put on too much it does something?

usually its the propellant that causes the cracking me thinks...altho when i mixed krylon with rustoleum it never turns out (cracking peeling)...so far the valspar/krylon mix has worked pretty good

I use a great product called Citri-Strip. It has the consistency of a paste/goop, creates no harmful odors and works on both metal and plastic without ruining the base material. Spread it on with a brush, let it sit for a few hours and then scrape with a wire brush or a plastic scraper.

Try Aluma-hyde2?
Gives a very nice, tough finish & works well on plastic too.

Usually any hardware store should carry it. I picked up my jug at Ace hardware. It comes in a clear jug with a white and green label on it. It costs round about $12 for a quart.
