yj hard top

i have a 90 yj with a tan hard top. i traded my soft top for the hard top a few months ago. the hard top was white on the inside, and i painted it grey to match my interior. i am assuming the outside is just painted tan. could i use paint stripper to remove the tan paint? has anyone ever tried this before. i want to eventually color match it, but i kinda want to see it white on my red jeep.

Don't use any kind of paint stripper on the hard top the fiberglass wont like it.
To paint the top you will need to sand the texture off and use a primer/surface to fill the pinholes that will be left after sanding then paint after sanding the primers.

Just paint it. dont worry about stripping old paint off. Bust out the roller if ya want to. Easy cheap touchups. It'll take alot of rattle cans to make it white from tan. I would not bother sanding anything either. Wash it real good with simple green, Rinse well, wipe with acetone, paint.
