If you want to actually strip all the paint off buy some aircraft paint remover. If i am spray painting a frame i usually just scuff it up and shoot it.

Wire brush the whole frame until its raw, then sand it to make it rough and put primer on it. The put a hell of alot of layers of your spray paint on it and badda bing badda boom, you're done
