    I might be looking to strip a pair of Whiskey Monster Dogs. I thought I read on here (can't find the post) that all you need is some warm water. Is that true? Is it really that easy?

    Very slowly...

    On a serious note, I think just rubbing alcohol will strip the finish.

    The hot water won't distort the frame at all?

    shouldnt as long as you dont bend and hold it at an odd angle.. thats how you adjust the frame shape, so be careful not to bend it when its hot. i would go the rubbing alcohol route, as long as it doesnt melt the plastic, which it shouldnt.

    kind of a shame to strip down a whiskey frame unless the finish was already wearing out..

    I already have one...so this would be a double. I am not 100% sure that I would stip it yet.

    The header scared the heck out of me
    A guy at a local O store told me rubbing alcohol as well- I sold him one of mine(both gone now)
