Personally, I wouldn't go it with paint stripper. I'd flat it back, etch prime it, flat it, prime it. With care, you should get a good result. I've just re-painted a Merc 75 using this method.

How do you mean flatten out the area? wire brush/sand I have few sections that are corroded somewhat - what products did you use? I'll be using spray paint at some point so I want to get an even surface, zinc chromate primer seems to be the recommened to bare metal

thanks

IMHO any paint thats still firmly adhered should be left on, (assuming its the original paint and not hammerite) It will be a good base coat for your paint job.
thoroughly flat down and degrease, and use a wire brush in an anglegrinder/drill to remove powdery corrosion, before flatting the bare metal down with 220 or 180 grit. then you can get aerosol acid etching primer in halfords, treat the bare metal with this, then give a coat of aerosol high build primer to fill any pock marks before flatting that off. then recoat with primer ,Then paint on your top coat.
did this on my leg and its stayed on OK!

when you go to buy the paint ask for a couple of tack rags, just before the final coat give it a quick rub down with 800 grit, blow the dust off with an airline, and then wipe the whole surface to be painted with your tack rag, the 800 grit breaks off any dust particles in the surface of the paint and the tack rag picks them up,
