There is also a product called "peel away"remover which may be over kill for one or two coats of paint,as this is a serious stripper, you putty knife it on,smooth out a bit,cover with the paper that comes with the stripper,let it sit for 24 hours and peel away,what a great concept eh ?

Now that sounds like work! This process I described above works just perfect to remove the vinyl. I've also found that I can let it sit for as little as 15 minutes after applying the two coats. Then I just poke a hole in it with a plastic scraper and then can usually pull it away in huge sheets...except for the areas that I didn't apply enough of the stripper to. I guess adding some dye to the stripper would be helpful, but sounds like it might be a different type of mess.

Adding to this older post but some might find this useful: I'm currently stripping our interior panels in place with Savogran's SuperStrip product. Works pretty good. It only dissolves the adhesive behind the vinyl, not the actual covering so you can pull the vinyl off in one big sheet.

I paint it on, wait 15 minutes, then paint it on again in any areas that haven't "lifted" or bubbled. Get a plastic scraper behind the vinyl and work if off the panel. There is still a bit of residue left behind on the aluminum but that should scrub off.

Wear heavy nitrile gloves--this stuff is nasty and burns skin on contact. Savogran is available at Lowe's, about $30 for a gallon container.
