Stripping with chemicals can be really messy. besides you have to wash the surface post stripping.

I used a 60-80 grit wheel to buzz right through paint. The flap type work really well and don't heat/warp the surface like a solid wheel. Go down just till you almost see metal then switch to a 120 grit. 6" DA's work well on the flat surfaces.

Undercoating will not be touched by the strippers. I tried them all and they just get gooey and smear. Best results were using a braide/knotted wire cup brush. Makes a huge mess that is easily swept up with a broom.

Be prepared to spend lots of time with the grinder if you go this route.
