    I'm refinishing a Fender body that has thick poly, so I thought I'd give Citistrip a shot, rather than just sanding like I normally do. It does say on the label it works on polyurethane.

    I applied it, waited a couple hours, and took a putty knife to it.

    The poly only laughed at the Citistrip. Giggled, even.

    No effect on the poly whatsoever.

    Just thought I would pass that on to possibly save you some trouble.

    I love Citristrip but I only use it to get to the Poly sealer coat, which I usually leave on
  3. I used the spray citristrip to pull nitro and acrylic lacquer off a body this weekend. It was so easy, I love this product.

    But yeah I sprayed a poly body and left it for 24 hours and it didn't even soften the surface.
  4. like somebody said poly is just a prefix: modern Fenders are polyester I think, and it is closer to fiberglass. Regular polyurethane like Minwax is more like varnish and will be removed by citristrip. 2 part polyurethane would laugh at citristrip also.
