haha yea. Chris, take of the tube, then rip off the foil, WEAR GLOVES! that foil is pretty sharp. I wore some machanics gloves. If you want to use the drill with the wire bit, it scrathes it up alot. This took me quite a while to do. I peeled as musch stuff off with my hands as i could, then soaked it with WD40 and Carb cleaner. I also tried Texsolve and this stuff called chem-dip. I threw almost all the chemicals we had on the shelf on the pipe. Then took a flat razor blade and scraped most of it off. Then i used steel wool on it, the superfine grit 0000 (all i had) and cleaned it up as much as i could.
Ill go take some pictures right now.
