Painting sailboat cabin interior, part 1: scrape off old paint

Project: INTERIOR CABIN PAINTING (Part 1) Old interior paint was peeling off in strips Due to previous improper surface prep Made very difficult because of rough textured pattern Can’t grind or sand off old paint Lots of caustic paint stripper instead Sides will be covered in vinyl so will not painted But old paint has to come off… Ceiling was hardest bit, very rough textured surface Now spent 2 days scraping off flakes MESSY JOB!!! Tried all kinds of implements including 3M Roloc bristle disks A barbecue grill brush worked best in the end Yes this is terrible, but if I do it right… I WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN!
