You will need to get a serious stripper. I used Jasco paint and epoxy stripper i got at Lowes. I put down some plastic wrap, liberally coated the rail with stripper on front and back, wrapped it in the plastic wrap and left it overnight. The powder coat bubbled up and i used a small piece of kitchen stainless steel that looks like a coarse brillo pad. About 90% of the powder coat came off easily. Then rinse it in running water while using the SS pad. Another coat of stripper and overnight soak, and you should be good. Paint it with some automotive clear coat from a spray can. If you don't coat it it will oxidize and not look too great.
