    I am in the middle of taking all my paint off mine at the moment, using a wire brush but it is taking ages due to the grooves. Good luck to you!!

    I stripped my decking of paint, I had to get it all off as I was changing to a lighter colour. I bought a couple of the tough wire brushes that you put into your drill and did it that way.

    I found the best way was to hold it at a pretty severe angle and work away from my body going with the grooves. it still took a long time but the result was bang on. I then swept it well with a soft brush and painted it.

    Had a good sit back with a cold beer when it was done. took two days though.

    The best way would probably be sand blasting. Nice and messy though
