Tips/Tricks to remove Undercoating?

How do you do it? What has worked? What hasn't?
I'm thinking a propane torch, and whole bunch of cheap putty knives.

I tried heat, and scrapers. Worked okay, but left a lot behind. Also, was a bit of working constantly heating, then setting that down to scrape, repeat.
I tried jellied aircraft stripper. The smell is intoxicating. Easy to use in my application. I smeared it on with a shop towel. Hour later I was able to scrape the bulk of the stuff off pretty easily.
I then used my secret weapon. Knotted wire wheel in my grinder. Worked awesome!
Wire wheel works at taking it off from the get go, however its quite messy. Much cleaner to just do the aircraft stripper first, then knotted wheel after you scraped the bulk off.

Oh and if you'd like some help with your rust issue, I'd be mroe then willing to come give you a hand with it. Nothing like bringing back memories of a '69 Mustang I did in Wyoming, lol
