What is a good paint stripper?? Is "Citristrip" a good one?? Workin on a gokart right now was originally yellow then got painted orange then black then blue Rolling Eyes  plan on painting black don't know what kind of black- gloss, matte, semi-gloss, satin, don't know yet. I'll post pics in a little bit. I've put tires and crap on needs some work- welding, nuts,washers,and bolts, paint job, engine, torque converter, chain, throttle cable, custom seat mounting bracket since seat was too big for the stock bolt holes, engine plate. Want to figure out how to put lights on it and going to take out governor as well as a air filter/jet upgrade kit, going to put on some 18lbs valve springs since its going to be running at around 5200 rpms instead on 3600 stock. Let me know that you think.

I would just go at it with an angle grinder with a wire wheel. Paint stripper isn't all that cheap.

You can get an angle grinder at Walmart for only $20. A wire wheel shouldn't be that expensive either. At least get the angle grinder... You won't regret it one bit!

For removing paint, definitely a wire wheel. You could get an aggressive knotted one and a fine brass one to get to different spots on that frame.
