As you can see, there are many ways to do the job. I am working on a 67 Barracuda right now. Most of the paint was stripped off is with a putty knife type scraper. I sharpen the scraper like a knife, and then I scrape it across a edge to break the paint off for a starting point. Then the scraper will get under the paint relatively easy. As with most any other operation, you should take safety precautions, like safety glasses, dust mask, gloves, etc... The job will wear on your arms and hands, but goes relatively quickly. It is alot easier to clean up afterwards than sanding, where the dust goes everywhere. Once you have scraped all of the relatively flat areas that way, the parts that need sanding and what not are limited, and go quickly.
