I soaked the body in oven cleaner, but it had very little effect on the paint. Being resin with filler (certainly on the hood, not sure about elsewhere) I decided sanding is a better option than stronger solvents or strippers to prep the majority of the body for repainting.
The hood is first thing that needs to be addressed. Using chisels, files, an X-Acto knife and sanding sticks I carved the main ducts through the hood. A little polyester two part filler was used to smooth out the low spots and sharpen the edges.
