Welcome to the Build Off.
Great bike to start with. Love the sweetheart chainring too.
 
Welcome to RRB BO fun! Keep the posts and progress photos and prose comin'!
 
Just went through your pics. Tell me about that Rustoleum Aircraft Remover. I assume it's a type of stripping application? The chainring and cranks and BB look great if that's what you used on them!

Bring us up to date on this cool old Schwinn!

That does a good job. And just wiped off with a paper towel! Pretty fast acting from the way it looks?
 
Wow, I don't know of any stripper that I have worked with that you would want to use bare hands with it.

Yeah it works fast.i scrape the bubbling paint of with a scraper tool then after I've removed the bulk of it I respray the entire bike then wipe off with paper towels. Ps. Don't be like me lol 😆 use gloves. I'm a rebel Dottie 😆 😂
 
Working out of town so this whole build has been done in or outside a hotel.lol I'm a rebel Dottie

Frame cleaned up nicely! Some nice brazing on there too.

Hotel manager: "Sir, some guests have been complaining about a toxic smell coming from your room."

RoosterboosterO: "Really? I don't smell anything at all."

Hotel manager: "Sir, you have a gas mask on."

"Hey, the sign says No Smoking. Not No Spray Painting or Clear Lacquer. I'm good." 😄
 
You should really try using the FULL IMAGE feature when you insert your pics, that way people see more than just the thumbnail and don't have to click to embiggen them. It makes build journals much more accessible.
