My Mystery Ibanez - couple questions

I posted just a little bit ago asking about the serial number now I have a couple questions as far as cleaning up, but first a pic of this beauty *LOL*




No thats not the guitars actual finish on top it's spray paint! and on the back we have stickers. My question is what is the best way to remove the two??? I just want to get down to the guitar's actual finish which is like a dark metallic blue? Thx

How about nail enamel remover as a paint remover?

Thats what I was thinking. You should see the stickers on the back *LOL* Someone spelled out Ibanez and CH1(Whatever that means). Plus a Nissan sticker *LOL* Neck reminds me alot of my JemVBK but only a 22fret version. Really big frets.

Okay I thought I'd just keep this one thread going so I can ask the questions I need to as I progress thru my first homemade project instead of starting 50 other ones. So here is my first question err questions

Once I have the body stripped should I do the whole finish first before I go installing the anchors for the trem?

When I'm finally ready to install the anchors what do I use to attatch them to the body? You know so they don't move around?

Thx everyone please be patient with me since this is my first time. Scott...............................

OMG!!!!!! I'm so shocked at the state of that poor thing I want to cry!!!! Geez! Who let it become like this??? I hope it gets restored... No guitar deserves to end up like this...

Good luck, Scott...

ah it was a Japanese gent who did it when he was young. Didn't realize what he was doing just trying to be different *S* Don't worry I'll get here back into shape eventually I'm going to look into some Seymour Duncans for this one I think.................I'll keep you all posted.
