Fiberglass paint stripper and paint

I'm stripping a snowmobile cowling that the PO used rattle can clear on, it's a mess. Hand sanding clogs the paper in a big way.

Is there a paint stripper that is fiberglass friendly? I used heavy duty strippers on my Nova and wouldn't dare put it on thin fiberglass.

I was told to use CitriStrip, but it says on the label not to use on fiberglass. I put it on a small section, let is sit for half an hour, it didn't even start to remove paint.

What are my options other than elbow grease?

I may use a rattle can paint, is Krylon Fusion about the best for my application?

I'm the one your momma never told you about...

If its rattle can clear, try lacquer thinner to wipe that off. Test small area first. I've only used DC rattle can, not impressed by it. If you want a better looking longer lasting shine, I hear catalyzed "2K" aerosols are a realistic thing now. Cost more but not like bodyshop paint because you don't get much.
