Thank you all for the replies. I tried an area with lacquer thinner and a red scotchbrite pad. The black top coat comes off very easy, the grey primer is a lot tougher. After thinking about it all day I think I would be wise to just get it media blasted. It will save time, and given it is nearing winter here it would not be good to try to clean it up in the garage. Too cold to do it outside. With all that said, what kind of media would you guys recommend? Is it possible to just take off the rattle can paint, or is it pretty much expected that it will be taken down to metal? Not expecting to be left in a usable condition if they can just take top layers off.     Thanks again.

Actually,  the lacquer thinner idea will work better outside in the cold,  it certainly won't evaporate too fast to soak in.
Safer too,  just no fun at all for you.
