If you mean Imron paint that stuff is tough. Sanding will take forever so you may want to consider aircraft paint stripper. Others here may have more experience or suggestions with this. I think DuPont made it. I have a friend who shot his 66 fastback with that back in the 80's and it looked great.

And welcome from Illinois btw!

I also think you are referring to Imron paint. Very tough to remove but aircraft stripper will do it. Messy but effective. Post some more pictures and data. There are alot of helpful folks here who can save you on the learning curve, and money. Welcome from Albuquerque, NM Ed

If you use aircraft remover brush it one direction, you can lay plastic over it to make it more effective. Wear gloves and a respirator in a well ventilated area. Keep a wet rag handy cause it burns like hell. Wear Glasses also.

Usually with this kind of composites, after sitting there for years, I would not expect much chemical reactions.
I'd go for mechanical removal using rotating brushes/tool. Not too aggressive for the surrounding bare metal.
I'd also remove the windshield moldings while at it, you may damage them while sanding and chances are high there is corrosion under them.

Welcome from Australia
I used both stripper and a large sanding disc mounted onto a polishing machine using the slower speeds, worked well for the tougher areas
