I understand that "Aircraft Stripper" sold in auto shops (Pep-Boys) is the way to go. I have removed old clearcoat with lacquer thinner.

You can also get Aircraft Remover at AutoZone and in aerosol form at Wal-Mart. For the largest part of the job on mine, I used HydroStrip 502 (ICI Paints version of RemoveAll) and a pneumatic spray gun. It's a little less dangerous to work with than the Aircraft Stripper and seems to work as well.
