Default Re: #8 lid weird coating

The only enamel I have ever seen removed was on an old cast iron bathtub. Only a section was removed due to cracking and some rust that got underneath.

They took what looked like a dull chisel, pretty much rounded off with no edge at all, and started tapping at the broken edge of the enamel. When they reached a point where it wouldn't chip off easily anymore, they stopped. They then sandblasted the exposed cast iron, acid etched the entire enameled surface, used a body filler type substance to fill in the scratches and chipped off area, and then sprayed on a new coating over the whole tub.

I am not sure you will be able to cleanly remove all the enamel.
