anyone have a go to paint stripper? i used to use Aircraft version of Kleen strip but since they removed the methylene chloride, it doesn't work very well. i have some metalcast on top of some chrome so mechanical stripping is not an option. 

thanks

I have used Permatex spray gasket remover. If it's still available it should do the job.

thanks for the suggestion mick.

although it didn't work very well with this Metalcast paint covered with a 2k clear, it did eventually get the paint off the chrome. it definitely worked better than the new formulation of the Aircraft paint stripper i was originally trying to use.
