    Try airplane stripper. You can buy it at a local auto parts store. Used this on a flat bottom I had a few years ago. It comes in a aerosol can. Works pretty good. Spray it on let it sits until it starts to bubble then scrape it off.

    I'm Spoiled, Soda blast is without a doubt the fast and easy solution. mild abrasive, cuts paint, no aluminum damage and no heat. I also saw a show on Discovery where they were using water blasting to repaint airplanes. they demo'ed stripping paint off of an empty soda can. paint was rapidly removed and can undamaged,
    Check around for a metal prep company in your area and probably someone does soda blasting. Most are reasonably priced.

    Probably not much more money than the stripper. [paint stripper that is]

    Naval Jelly works, but it's probably cost prohibitive.
    Where you go is less important than how you take the steps.
    But don't forget the Roadrunners

    Look for someone who blasts with walnut shells. Metal stretches somewhat if using soda or sand. Also you could rent a pot blaster and purchase a couple bags of plastic blast media.
