There were still a few spots that the liner didn't come off, so I sprayed it down with the rest of the Easy Off. I let it sit all night, and it will sit all day today in the sun - hoping the rest will come off just as easily. I'll wire wheel any left on, wash, do a little burn with a weed burner, paint and season.
This wasn't a red liner though....it was a tan liner.
