Aluminum Paint Remover?

Anyone know a Rockstar paint remove for aluminum frames.... also what would happen if used on a carbon fiber fork?

I don't know about any good Al paint removers, but I do know if
you get it on a carbon Fibre fork it will delaminate and you'll
wish whatever you put on the fork didn't work. This regret will
be even more pronounced if the delamination takes place during
a long downhill.
Keep all solvents away from CF.
