Mind sharing the kind of drain cleaner? I plan on stripping the anno on my spyder as well.

It looks kind of rough and scratchy, make sure to increase you grit count with sandpaper, and sand it down smoothe, then go in and polish it with some good ol' Mothers Mag, then buff it to shine! Polish the insides too!

that looks like a ton of work... dont forget to get some abraisive sponge (better than very high grit sand paper for finishing) before you polish
