Darrell asked 10 years ago

About 80% of the vinyl coating on the exterior of the door was bubbled and cracked. Probably due to prolonged exposure to the sunlight. It was relatively easy to remove using a scraper. In the remaining areas the vinyl is still securely bonded to the metal and scraping doesn’t touch it. Heat gun creates a big gooey mess with lots left on the door. Liquid paint stripper has no effect. Is there an easier way to remove this vinyl covering?

The heat gun or physically chiseling it off is the only way to remove the vinyl coating.
