White paint laughs in the face of Carbolift. The best you can hope for is the Carbolift to soften the paint enough for you to get underneath it with a scapel/razor blade and scrape it off in chunks.

Like many people I've contacted carbolift (on here, their website and twitter) with no reply.
After hearing a few people being dissatisfied with their service, is there an alternative company/product?

I used a product from Wickes that works about as well as Carbolift (not well at all but does the job in the end) and costs a fraction of the price

Cheers Dov, will most probably give it a go after trying it on something small first.

Dov,

Did you use that product on the frame or wheels? I am looking for something that will strip my wheels of paint. I am thinking any "water washable" stripper would work...without doing any damage to the carbon (fingers crossed).

I ended up cancelling my order w/ carbolift after waiting forever and just bought it from a local airplane supply place. Not sure where you're located but they have two stores (one on each coasts in the US). They're listed on carbolift's website if you are interested.

All strippers are neutralized with water, so that doesn't mean they are safe for carbon or your skin

I like the sound of this wicked stuff. Any more info on it Dov? What's the best way to use it?

I have a spare carbon fork that I might give a whirl with this stuff. If it knackers it, it's no great loss.

I used it as per the instructions. Thin coat, 30 minutes late thick coat, don't brush out, leave until it bubbles. Scrape off when paint/lacquer has softened.
