I had a temp job working at a body shop that had the contract to patch up the local police cars. I accidently discovered that at certain angles the pressure washer would remove the stuck-on stripes in an instant!

This was in the 80s and apart from the selection of police cars, the most common things in the yard were stolen/recovered Cosworths. We used screwdrivers in the broken ignition barrels to start them when thay had to be moved around.

We regularly clean our ribs with a steam cleaner and traffic film remover. Works on pretty much anything with the water temp at about 80 degrees. How have to be careful on the tubes though. Its a big diesel steam cleaner so standing back when you do the tubes is a must.

Also engine decals, trailer deacals, SSR numbers and the like come off very quickly, but it does a very good job.

We've never had any problems getting really close to the GRP though.
