I think Randy's right
You should sand it for me, Kevin for all the mustard you've caused me to spill on my white "club shirt"

I'm not sure about fiberglass, but when I was into r/c cars and wanted to remove the paint from the lexan bodies, I used brake fluid. It was the only thing other than nitro fuel that would not eat the lexan bodies. I would use a medium soft/hard sponge, soak it down, leave it sit for a few minutes, and with very little effort the paint would come right off and just basically dissolve.

save on FG

I stripped a Byron F-16 and a Prather deepvee boat using "Reco-chem" paint remover. I bought it at walmart. Metal can, rectangular in shape, cheap too. Green label - said "safe on FG" and I had no problems. I don't know what type of FG it was though. The boat was a heavy FG, but the jet was really thin and it worked fine on both. Gets the brunt of the paint off, then it's the wet sanding time.
