So I got one of these aluminum night vision boxes for free. http://west.loadup.com/military/surplus/13207.html I have a 2012 KLR 650. I want to mount it on the back. I pretty much know what I'm going to do for the mounting but the damn thing is an ugly od green and doesn't match my bike at all. I know it's just a KLR but does anyone have any advice on how to get the paint off it? I put acetone on it and then tried to scrape it off, nothing. Then I hit it with a wire wheel on a drill and it just burned the stuff and didn't get down to the metal. I even tried heating it with a propane torch a little and it was completely ineffective. Any advice on how to strip this box? I think it would look good as bare aluminum. Or would it be easier to sand it a little and paint it? Any other words of wisdom or suggestions on using this as a top box?
