Stripping off new clearcoat

I have a 99 Safari and in a weak moment, decided I was sick of the ugly peeling clearcoat and launched a polishing project. Slow going but the yellow "vanilla pudding" stripper from Vintage Trailer Supply works fairly well, touched up in tough spots with Strypeeze.

Last year, Colin Hyde replaced two back panels that a tree had moved in front of. They are new from the factory and have a tough coating. What I have won't hardly touch it - I need something strong and nasty. Anyone got suggestions on what might work on the two new panels? I'd leave them but I got a few square feet off with three tries with Strypeeze so I'm commited.

Polishing on the other sections looks ok - not as bright as the vintage ones but ok.

I answered my own question -- bought a couple of strippers today and tried them -- Zip-Strip crinkled it up, but still took 3 or 4 applications to get everything. Hosed it off -- Citristrip sort of just sat there. Onward!
