hmm we had a paint like that here in NZ .. (think it was a laquer )it was an ass to sand off even 24 grit 7'' resin back sandpaper disk .. use long a lateral stroke so theres a bit of a cool off - paint surface - helped get it gone but still took a couple of new disks..

or one of those 2000 watt electric hot air guns and a scrapper .. the panels do get hot . shouldn't warp though unless you concentrate n one spot too long..

paint stripper while effective is messy stinky and ive seen too many paint jobs wrecked - stripper left in joins even eats it way into seem sealers that look very well cleaned .. 6 months there rust cos the paint lifted..

luck

Default scraping tools

Model T Fords used JAPAN enamel and that paint just melts and smears. I use a stiff 4 in wide putty knife that I round the corners then sharpen raisor sharp on a fine grit belt sandaer then an oil stone.
Start holding the knife 90 * to the surface then adjust the angle untill you get the best results .I use two hands holding the sides of the blade. My willys had about 7 layers of paint

These discs are amazing and don't clog even when stripping enamel, undercoating, road tar etc.

Im gonna get one of those. I used aircraft stripper today, softened it up a little, but still couldn't scrape it off. I used a 40 grit flapper wheel after the stripper and it is starting to come off, but not easy. Ive had hundreds of cars and never had this much trouble removing paint.

Thanks for the pic of the stripper. I've seen them before but was hesitant to buy one. They work great. I could of saved alot of money on sandpaper and stripper if i would of just tried one. Thank you.
