Stripping Trouble

I have been stripping my trailer with aircraft stripper. It worked great on the bottom half. From the windows up the finish is baked on (looks cloudy) and the stripper hardly touches it. If I use a fine scotch bright it comes off, but it leaves fine scratches. This would not be a big deal if I was going to polish.
The non scratch scotch brites work, but not nearly as well. I am fairly sure that it is clear coat and not corrosion, as I have done the old "polish test".

Any advice is welcomed.

Thanks Jon

Sounds like your trying to strip sunburn. The clearcoat peels off over time from the top of the windows up. Pictures might help...

Looks to me like sun burn. It is kinda tricky doing the paint test because there will still be some remnants here and there but that is definitely what mine looked like when I stripped the clear coat and in the same design and areas too. You might be able to do a light polish in those areas to knock the corrosion down, but it will be hard to match the finish on the clearcoat protected areas.

Wouldn't the corrosion turn black when hit with polish though? On a rag I mean. I thought that if there was corrosion it would turn the rag black when you polished it. If it was clearcoat the rag would not turn black. I am not sure though because I am pretty new to this. I had a little bit better luck when I used a scrubby and wiped it with acetone.
