Paint removal options?

Yes....yet another question. I'm thinking of stripping my truck cab back to bare steel. I think its a lacquer finish underneath a repaint. I need to remove paint in nooks and crannies, but I don't want to damage the paint on my recently finished frame. (with chemicals) I'm thinking of using 3M or equiv. paint removal discs and my small sand blaster for the crevices. (glass bead) Shipping the truck elsewhere is also out of the question. Is there any "no mess" chemical paint strippers?

Thanks in advance...

unfortunately not, i did see an add for por 15 paint stripper, suppose to be really good stuff, has anyone here heard about it? they say it is less toxic and alot user freindly,also if there is lacquer under the finish youd better strip it, i just had some MAJOR problems with a job i done on an 87 chevy, and it has cost me money, i would have been better to just write the customer a check an sent them on there way, it was a disaster, literally.mike

Well, You know the answer to the "User Friendly" stuff. Usually dosen't work worth a dime.
You can take the thin cheap paint plastic and drape over and around along with some good tape to protect what you don't want stripped.
The blaster and DA will be your best choice of removal. Stripping is MESSY and even the best attenpt's at protection can fail.
Use your common sense and Get 'er done. It's not rocket science,just thinking ahead my brother.
Another option would be to sand back to the original,then shoot a coat of epoxy then Featherfill 2 polyester primer to seal what's left underneith. This has gotten me out of a lot of problematic past paint job's. This would be the cheater out. Like said before, the real problem is with the lacquer lifting off the OEM primer. I have a perfect example of this with the wife's 86 Gran Prix which has multiple lifts of the paint from the yellow primer.
