Apply a thick coating of aircraft stripper then cover it with a thin piece of plastic to keep it from drying out, let it set for an hour or two then pull the plastic and scrape off the paint with a razor scraper. Do a few panels at a time. When most of the paint and primer is off wash the part good with water to scrub off any residue and neutralize any possible remaining stripper. Then finish off by sanding with 80 grit on a DA, use 3M Klean and strip discs on the edges and tight areas. Clean and prime with a good quality epoxy ASAP. When all is in primer you can now go back and work on any dents or rust issues that need attention without having to worry about flash rusting.
