Simple Green is the preferred chemical cocktail for stripping paint. Draino works well, as does brake fluid-- although Simple Green works far better than brake fluid, in my experience, and Draino works the best, so long as you're not dealing with enamels, because Draino won't strip enamel for some reason.

Thanks for the info guys. By the way I found Nitromors it is something that is easy to come by here in the states. I also never thought to use Drain-o, but I'll give it a shot cause I know we have some at home.

Thanks again guys.
