New stripper that works better

My compressor quit today so I though I would make use of the nice weather to strip the 65 Ambie.
The results were very splotchy and would require a few more coats.I used Citristip and it dryed up pretty quickly.I don't think it works that well.
VTS is suppose to have some RemoveAll in March.What else can I use that I can paint on and rinse off?
The top pictured has a dark surface and I assume clearcoat is gone and this is oxidation?
Other pic show an area that was painted with silver paint .When I stripped it a flat grey surface appeared.I used a little Nuvite by hand and it polished up.

I am not sure about what might be a better product, but I do remember that when I stripped the Trade Wind a couple years ago that temperature was critical. Just a couple degrees to cool and the stuff just didn't work. I cant say for sure, but I suspect that a warmer day might yield better results.

That could be it.It's been in the 30's and when it hit 60 I thought it was summer.
