Default Removing Paint from starterbox help needed

Hi, got a starterbox that has been powder-coated, i want to strip the paint and just have that shinny bare metal look, anyone have a quick and simple way of removing the paint without damaging the metal.

Aircraft paint stripper is your best bet for "DIY" if you dont have a sand/bead blaster or cant get access to one.

You can get the stripper at most auto parts stores. Comes in a spray can.. takes 3-4 applications depending on how thick the powder coat was laid on, but it does work.

Or if you have a place local that does powdercoating, then can acid dip it for you and that will strip it all off as well.
