That's why you want to strip outside of panels. The old paint on these old gm's will crack your new paint job[maybe]. I would strip it with a 8" mud hog or 6" da with 80 or 40 grit.Just keep it moving and don't stay in one spot too long or stand it on end. If you just sand really good in the jams you should get the paint thin enough to not be a issue.
