I purchased a used grab bar for the Gheenoe but whoever owned it before painted the aluminum over with black paint. Some of the paint is chipping away so I want to try to strip away the black paint to expose the aluminum that's under it. My question is will a liquid paint stripper work for this job and will it harm the aluminum finish?

Aircraft paint stripper, designed for use on aluminum.
I've used acetone to dissolve old paint off of parts.

I have a can of KS-3 premium stripper . It says it can be used on wood,metal and masonary. Should this work?

Easy-off oven cleaner. We used to use it to strip the paint off aluminum paintball bottles and guns. Took the anodizing right off, then polish.

Aircraft paint remover. It's what I use on anything that needs to be stripped.

I ended up using Kleen Strip premium stripper and it did a great job. The aluminum under the paint wasn't harmed and looks almost new again.
