The name "Toluene" is familiar. Does anyone out there remember the name of the solvent we used to strip the paint off the internal wing braces (or what ever the hell they are called) back in 1965? Toluene sounds like the stuff we used. Darn near killed more than one maintainer. Back then no one knew what a carcinogenic was, nor did they care. Just curious as to if it is the same chemical we used.....
