I have used aircraft paint remover on the interior door of a car. It worked very well, but get ready to catch it when it drips. It ate through what I to cover the floor and then ate through my garage's epoxy coating. The coating was in rough shape anyway, but it worked fast. I don't remember using gloves, but was extremely careful not to get it on my skin.
