Stripping car paint?

Had my cocker painted and clear coated many years ago but now is chipping away. What's the easiest and most effective way to strip the car paint?

That's going to take off the anodization too.

I've had good luck stripping markers with brake cleaner. JASCO and aircraft are probably more effective strippers if you have some around and for the most part are safe for anno since they're non-corrosive. Just make sure to wear gloves.

Most paint strippers are NaOH (sodium hydroxide) based products. That is to say the have a very high or alkaline pH. If you use this kind of paint stripper, it will take off the ano as well. You might be better off with a solvent based stripper, like paint thinner or acetone.

Was just thinking it might be best to bring it down to a raw body then anno or repaint it.

Use aircraft/auto paint remover. You can buy it at a hardware store like Home Depot. Make sure you wear some heavy duty gloves and use a brush or chemical resistant spray bottle to apply it. Stuff burns if it comes in contact with skin.

Aircraft remover is SERIOUS stuff. But it does remove powder coat like nothing else.
