Looks like you can still buy it from chemical supply houses: Methylene Chloride for Sale from ReAgent, UK Suppliers

Cheers mate that's why I begged the question as I thought it maybe the case.

Billy if you want the job done properly I think that you have no choice but to strip the wiring and take it off and get it shot blasted and powder coated as Maxi say's ..... plus rewiring it yourself is easier than you think. Good luck :thumbup:

If You decide for mechanical removal, Abranet is good stuff. Various grits can be purchased also by length, and even by manual sanding it works pretty well. But if You wont paint it, there will be plenty of polishing in any case.

Two pack paint stripper from a automotive paint supplier or motor factor (who supplies the motor trade not diy) should be the most aggressive you will get but may be only available in 5 ltrs

If you just want to remove remaining paint Billy ...(and re-paint) I suspect it would VERY soon (especially as you say it's faking already!) rub off with some 180 or 220 grade wet and dry paper.
Use it wet,with a little Fairy liquid and it'll cut better,and keep the dust down
That will also help will key it up....for some etch (aerosole) Primer,which you can get at an automotive supplies along with some two/pack car paint....which you can also get mixed up at the same place in you're choice of colour?..Matt or Gloss ect...Mask out and use dust sheets and apply with thin coats,till the right finish is achieved
Best option IMO if you're not going P.C.

any mobile soda blasters over there? like shot blasting only with baking soda so less toxic. I had pretty good success with the CitriStrip on my zodiac hull paint (surprisingly). If it's stainless do you really want to paint it?

Removing badly flaked paint from A frame

But you didn't answer the actual question though.

Jambo didn't ask "What would you do", he asked how to get the paint off so he could go back to stainless...
