If I may add this: when painting on the stripper cover it with some wax paper. This prevents the solvents in the stripper from evaporating too quickly. You'll need to watch it and check to see when the paint begins to soften. Once it softens I start to scrape it off and then wipe of the remaining residue. It's an old tip I learned decades ago when stripping furniture, boats, etc. I recently stripped an old Bootlegger fuse this way, worked very well. But...YMMV.
