LOL that old lacquer primer is a bear to get off.
it's a lot of work but heres what you do,,,get a pile of cloth rags and soak then with lacquer thinner (get a 5 gal bucket of thinner) Pile the wet rags on 24"x24" area and keeping them wet.slide the pile over and useing a razor scraper scrape that crap off easy while its soft ,move fast because it'll start drying and get harder and harder to get off, slide the pile of wet rags over and continue you'll get the hang of it fast....You can also sand it of with 40 grit da but an 8" da (mud hog) works better but the paper is expensive, it takes longer and it makes a heck of a mess...try the lacquer thinner first...wear rubber gloves thinner soaks through your skin...
