Are we talking plastic or metal? For plastic I use Easy Off oven cleaner, it has worked on everything I have thrown at it, for metal media blasting is the only way to go. Hope this helps!!

If you use Ez Off get the yellow can. The blue can does not work !

I have just had to strip a body for the first time and have found that Dot 3 brake fluid and a medium toothbrush was the easiest for me. A tip as well for you. I couldnt find a container that would fit the body horizontally as I have seen so many times here and ended up with a container that is for storing flour/sugar/rice. It is tall 12" or 300mm and 4" or 100mm square. An unexpected bonus was that the entire body is immersed save for the very front or back depending on which way you put the body in, as it will float, but attach a plastic peg and when the lid goes on, it pushes it down into the brake fluid. Also because it is designed to keep food fresh it is airtight (No odours) and watertight (no Spills). Around 36 hours and everything came off and back to bare shell with no damage to the shell. I found it easy enough to find something else to do in that timeframe. Hope this helps.
