If it is decent paint but you just dont like the look of it, I would just wet sand it all smooth and re-paint it.

I would tend to stay away from any kind of chemical stripper, for fear of hurting the fiberglass resin as your probably wondering.

There are strppers out there that are made especially for stripping paint from fiberglass without harming the surface. This is just one example of many:

I cant remember now,but can get the info by tomarrow morning. Got to get some materials at my local paint store. I know 3M makes a fiberglass striper and SEM does too. You can try with these two brands.[8D]
